Building Rectilinear Shapes

This week in year 4, children have been building rectilinear shapes with multi-link cubes. They also created a drawing based on the shape they made and worked out the area. Children have been counting squares to work out the area of a shape. They have applied the traditional method of working out the area of a shape (length x width).

Furthermore, children understand why it is important to work out the area of a shape. For example, Jersey was able to explain that it is important to know the size of a bedroom so that a person can order the furniture that will fit in their room. She also explained that if someones bedroom is too small then they cannot order a king size bed.

Well done year 4!
