  • Rubbish! Even with the setting for the printer is 100% (printing from Microsoft Edge web browser) it still prints incorrectly with the test page measuring 4.7cm when it says it should be 5cm. No good at all.

    • Hi there,
      Thanks for getting in touch and I'm sorry to hear you are having issues with this resource. Our lovely design team have checked the measurements and they are definitely all exactly as shown on the answer sheet. For best printing results, please ensure you are downloading the file and opening it with PDF viewing software such as Adobe Acrobat Viewer. I hope this helps!

  • I used this with my maths class, we used the 2 star sheet - not one of questions matches the answer sheet.  When you actually measure the shapes given on the second set of sheets they do not measure .5cm either they are .2, .7 etc.  My printer is set to correct settings (100% in order that is prints accurately).

  • I'm not sure if it is me but the answers don't seem to match the questions for the middle and higher ability.  The sides all seem to be decimal numbers so the children struggled to add the decimals together.

    • Hi StStephen
      Thanks for getting in touch. I'm sorry there were some problems with this resource. Sometimes, especially with the resources which involve measuring, we find that printer settings are really important. You'll need to make sure your printer is set to 100% to print this resource so that the sizes of the shapes are accurate. Just let us know if you have further problems :)

Use these differentiated activity sheets to help your children practise measuring and calculating the perimeter of a rectilinear figure in order to tick off their Y4 objective. Don't forget to print at 100%!
