Geometry - Properties of Shape

In Year One and Two children build on their knowledge of 2-D and 3-D shapes gained in the EYFS.

 

In Year One they are taught to recognise and name common 2-D and 3-D shapes, including:

2-D shapes [for example, rectangles* (including squares*), circles and triangles]

3-D shapes [for example, cuboids (including cubes), pyramids and spheres].

 

* Please note - Rectangles are shapes which have four straight sides and four right angles. These include oblongs and squares.

 

In Year Two the children learn to recognise and name a wider range of 2-D and 3-D shapes and to talk about their properties and features.

 

They us the terms edges and faces and vertex/ vertices when referring to the points where two or more edges meet.

 

Children recognise 2-D shapes as a face on a 3-D shape and compare and sort shapes according to their properties.
