National Curriculum Objectives

Mathematics Year 5: (5M7b) Calculate and compare the area of rectangles (including squares), and including using standard units, square centimetres (cm2) and square metres (m2) and estimate the area of irregular shapes

Mathematics Year 6: (6M7b) Calculate the area of parallelograms and triangles

Mathematics Year 6: (6M7c) Recognise when it is possible to use formulae for the area of shapes

Differentiation for Year 5 Area of Irregular Shapes:

The answers given for this resource are based on counting full squares (or near full squares) and then matching part squares to make whole squares. Your pupils may have different answers to those given by us, but if they can explain how they have reached their answer, accept it as correct. The Teaching PPT includes examples of this on each answer slide.
