Perimeter in metres

Year 5 pupils have been studying perimeter and estimating lengths.

One task involved estimating the length of the perimeter of the netball pitch and then measure it accurately with a measuring tape.
Another task required measuring the perimeter of an unusual shape.

Lewis and Juho proved to have the best estimates for the netball pitch. The pictures show the children using a metre rule to help them get a realistic estimate.
