  • Year Group: 6
  • Key Stage: KS2

SKU: M6CS10040

Take an in-depth look at a number of strategies for calculating the area and perimeter of shapes and calculating the volume of cuboids. Through the slides and activities, children are shown how to apply these strategies when calculating the areas, perimeters and volumes of increasingly complex compound shapes, and given plenty of opportunities to practise! To round of the week’s learning, the fifth lesson in this Complete Series challenges children to order volumes given using a range of different units of measurement.
