1  Perimeter for Years 35
The White Rose Maths Hub is funded by the government and works with hundreds of primary schools. Download the scheme of learning for perimeter for Y3, Y4 and Y5 here.
 The Y3 resource covers calculating the perimeters of 2D shapes in centimetres or millimetres.
 The Y4 resource covers measuring and calculating the perimeter of a rectilinear figure.
 The Y5 resource covers calculating the perimeter of composite rectilinear shapes.
Get all of these resources here.
2  Perimeters – Y3 measurement maths challenge
These perimeter review worksheets provide extra challenge for Year 3 children.
They feature a variety of perimeter problems are spread across three sections, enabling you to use the whole sheet during a lesson or to select specific problems for different teaching sessions.
A separate answer sheet for all sections is included.

4  Length, area and perimeter
This lesson plan from Mike Askew is differentiated for Key Stage 1, and lower and upper Key Stage 2, and offers a number of activities to approach length, area and perimeter with your students.
Check it out over on our sister site teachprimary.com.
5  Perimeter of 2D shapes worksheet
Aimed at upper KS2 learners, this worksheet challenges them to work out the perimeter of various shapes, even when the measurements for all sides aren’t given.
Download or print this PDF here.
6  KS1/2 perimeter and area lesson
Most arithmetical relationships that primary children encounter obey simple direct rules: for example, the larger the number you add, the larger the total. The relationship between perimeter and area is probably the first connection that children meet where the ‘rules’ are not simple and direct.
In this lesson plan Mike Askew is here to guide children through those rules.
Get this free resource here.
7  Perimeter explorer
This handy interactive tool creates random shapes and asks students to work out the perimeter. Just type in your answer and hit the ‘Check’ button to see if you’ve got it right.
You can choose the number of squares in the shapes, from 1 to 46, and there’s an option to only create rectangular shapes too.
Give it a try here.
8  Mister Maths worksheet
Worksheets. They’re always handy. Here’s an 11question PDF from Mister Maths that’s suitable for KS2 children.
You can find it here.
9  Perimbots
Here’s a great little game that challenges you to answer six perimeter questions, and collect a robot part for each correct one.
You get to choose from a selection of heads, bodies, arms and legs to build your robot, and the variety of questions keeps things interesting too.
Give it a play here.
10  NRICH area and perimeter
This NRICH article (which comes with printable resources too) has a range of fun challenges that’ll get KS2 students exploring the relationship between area and perimeter for themselves.
It tasks them with things like:
 Drawing a shape where the area and perimeter are the same
 Drawing one where the perimeter is numerically twice the area (and vice versa)
 Making the area of a shape go up while the perimeter goes down
 And drawing shapes that have the same area but different perimeters
