# Perimeter and Area (Year 6)

In KS2 Maths children will come to understand perimeter and area. In Year Six children should know how to work out the perimeter of any regular shape, such as a square, triangle, rectangle, pentagon etc. They should also be confident when calculating the area of a square, a right angled triangle, a rectangle or an L-shape and in converting between mm^{2}, cm^{2} and m^{2}. They will now be exposed to three-dimensional, or 3D shapes, and shown how to calculate their area.

Area is the size of the surface of a two-dimensional (2D) or three-dimensional (3D) shape. The area of a three-dimensional shape is worked out by adding the area of each of its faces together. The area of each of its faces is worked out in the same way as the area of 2D shapes. This Perimeter and Area quiz is all about the perimeter and area of 2D shapes and the surface area of 3D shapes.

Take this quiz for 10-11 year olds to discover what you know about area and perimeter.
