Maths- Perimeter and area

After calculating the perimeter and areas of rectangles, squares and compound shapes on paper, we went in search of some larger areas to measure! Children used the trundle wheels to measure the dimensions of spaces around the school grounds and labelled these on an aerial map of the school. They then calculated the actual areas and perimeters. But were  they close to their estimates?
