## Core Content

- In this lesson, we will investigate the relationship between area and perimeter and use this knowledge to solve area and perimeter problems. We will identify key similarities and differences between the two ideas.

## Area and perimeter:

- Measure and calculate the perimeter of rectangles in centimetres and millimetres
- Draw shapes of a given perimeter
- Calculate the perimeter of rectangles in centimetres and metres
- Calculate the perimeter of simple compound shapes
- Calculate the perimeter of composite shapes
- Understand that area is a measure of surface and is measured in square units (Part 1)
- Understand that area is a measure of surface and is measured in square units (Part 2)
- Calculate and compare the area of rectangles using square centimetres (cm²)
- Calculate and compare the area of rectangles using square metres (m²)
- Investigate the relationship between area and perimeter and use this knowledge to solve problems
