What is area?

This week's maths is all about area - remember our idea about the field? The perimeter was the fence around the outside of the field, the area would be the grass - the space inside the fence.

We will work through the objectives each day, finishing with the block check on Friday.

Today we will learn 'What is area?'

Watch the BBC and Whiterose video below before completing the activities. Remember to try the GDS challenge if you find the whiterose straight forward.
