L.O. To solve perimeter problems

You can choose this morning which activity you would like. There are some more word problems if you think you need more practice, but if you are feeling confident, you might want to do the perimeter challenges, which are a bit trickier. 

The Census 2021 - Live Lesson - 11:00 YouTube

The next census is taking place on Sunday 21 March 2021. The census is a survey that happens every 10 years and gives us a picture of all the people and households in England and Wales. This helps to plan and fund public services in your area.

There’s no other survey that gives as much detail about us and the society we live in.


The census is the most complete source of information about our population. Held every 10 years, it’s been giving a detailed picture of our society since 1801. We ran our last census in 2011 and we’re now getting ready for the next one in 2021. The information we receive is vitally important to local authorities and community groups, as well as to the government, businesses and academics.

Census data helps these groups to understand the needs of our society, now and in the future. It also helps with planning and resource allocation, while providing a snapshot for future generations to look back on.
