  • We were given this resource ready printed for our maths lesson (I am part-time so copying when I get into school is not great).  What a nightmare!  The measurements weren't even close.  I so wish that I had known in advance about the reviews.  Instead of being a straight forward and simple lesson, it ended up being awful.  Marking is also not going to be fun or a simple process.

    • Hi GLoveday,
      Sorry you're having a few issues here! :)
      Can I just check that you changed the printer settings as default printer settings are usually set at 97%. Please try printing again, adjusting these settings to print at 100%. I have asked for some instructions explaining this to be added to the resource :) If you try this and still seem to be experiencing issues, please get back in touch and we'll be happy to help.
      Have a lovely day! :)

  • Disappointed with the answer sheet for this resource, I had read the reviews and it appeared the problems had been sorted, I checked the printer settings so I knew they were printed at 100% but still lots of issues. I used the 2 star questions, only the first 2 answers for the triangles were correct - in fact there are 12 triangles and the answer sheet only had 10! Some of the answers were completely out, answer said 11.5 but actually the answer was 21cm not even close! All the quadrilaterals were correct but only 4 of the polygons were correct.

  • This was a great resource for different challenges:
    CH1: triangles 1 star and rectangles 2 stars - rounding measures to nearest cm
    CH2: polygons 1 star and quadrilaterals 2 stars - rounding measures to nearest cmCH3: Polygons from both 2 and 3 stars - precise measures in cm and mm

    The problem that I came across was that not all of the answers were correct. the first challenge ones were great but a lot of the CH2/3 were out by a few cm which made marking more time consuming than anticipated. 

    Bare in mind this is the first hiccup I have had with twinkle, I am really finding the resources useful otherwise. - Many thanks!

    • Hello again!
      The advise from our design team is to check the print settings when printing PDFs as many users print PDFs at the default setting which is often 97%. This can throw out the measurements. Please try printing again adjusting these settings to print at 100%. :) If you try this and still seem to be experiencing issues with the resource could you please let us know? Then I'd be happy to see if any errors could be fixed.

  • Similar to others, I printed and realised 5mins before my maths lesson that the measurements weren't in whole cm or even half cm....had to draw my own sheets during registration in order to have something to teach...bit of a let down

  • The measurements aren't accurate enough.  Not suitable for Y3 children.

    • Hi y3alder,
      Thanks for letting us know about this issue. I can see that a few of our customers have reported having issues with it before. I will send it over to our lovely design team, who can take another look. They will be in touch with you soon. Have a lovely day :)

    • Hello y3alder
      We've looked at this resource and found that the measurements are accurate. Many users print pdfs at the default setting which is often 97%. This can throw out the measurements. Please try printing again adjusting these settings. :) Please let me know if you're still having problems with measurements! Have a lovely day. :)

  • This resource would be better aimed at Yr4 pupil as middle and upper ability involved the children needing to be able to add decimal numbers together, a Yr4 objective.

Use these differentiated activity sheets to help your children develop their understanding of measuring perimeter and tick off their Y3 objective. Don't forget to print at 100% size!
