Measurement – Area – Lesson 3

LO: To be able to calculate the area of a compound shape

SC1. I can explain what a compound shape is.

SC2. I can calculate the area of the individual pieces of a compound shape.

SC3. I can use my answers to calculate the total area of a compound shape.

Over the last few lessons, we have begun to look at how to calculate the area of a shape. We have used both squares to calculate the area and we have learnt a formula for calculating the area of a simple rectangular or square shape:


Area = Length x Width


Today, we are going to use our knowledge of calculating the area of a shape to help calculate the area of a compound rectilinear shape. We have looked at these types of shapes before when learning about perimeter. A compound rectilinear shape is simple a 2D shape which looks as if it has been made by putting together two or more rectangles and/or squares.


To calculate the area of a compound rectilinear shape we simply need to be able to recognise the shapes which have been used to create the rectilinear shape and then use the given measurements to calculate the area.


I have put together a PowerPoint and there is a video to help with today’s lesson.



Today, there are two PowerPoints. One looks at how to solve area problems and the second contains today's questions and answers. Please note that once you are on a question do not keep clicking as it will reveal the answer. You will need to solve the problem first in your books and then you can reveal the answer.


There is also a challenge questions at the end of the PowerPoint.

LO: To be able to explain how I will present my ideas for an “ideal world”

SC1. I can consider what skills I need to be able to create a speech.

SC2. I can consider which topics interest me and explain why.

SC3. I can begin to think about how my speech will link to “Rights Respecting”.

Mrs Mitchel and Miss Fermor have set you the challenge of creating a speech about your ideal world. Your speech will be linked to what has happened to our world over the last few months. You will need to think about how in such difficult times there have been some glimmers of hope as pollution has fallen, animals are thriving and people are being kinder and more thoughtful towards each other.

Please watch the Challenge 10 video:

b)      What do I need to know? What are my areas of interest?

List all the things you will need to know to complete this challenge e.g. I am fascinated by the environment so I will need to learn about…

c)       What skills will I use?
