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

In Year 4, pupils will have explored area by counting squares to find the area of rectilinear shapes. They will also have related area to arrays and multiplication and used this to discover that for rectangles you can use length x width to work out how many squares would fit inside the shape.

During this sequence, pupils will build on their understanding of area being measured in square units and they will calculate and compare the area of rectangles (including squares) using standard units, square centimetres (cm2) and square metres (m2). They will use this to calculate area from scale drawings using given measurements and to solve problems. Furthermore, pupils will develop their ability to estimate the area of irregular shapes.


LO – To develop strategies to estimate the area of irregular shapes

Follow the screens provided

But basically, you are working out the area of a shape by counting the squares inside.
