Year 2 Shape

These are components of shape (geometry) that are taught in Year 2. Below you will find resources that you may find useful in supporting your child. 

 

  • identify and describe the properties of 2-D shapes, including the number of sides and line symmetry in a vertical line
  • identify and describe the properties of 3-D shapes, including the number of edges, vertices and faces
  • identify 2-D shapes on the surface of 3-D shapes, [for example, a circle on a cylinder and a triangle on a pyramid]
  • compare and sort common 2-D and 3-D shapes and everyday objects.
2d Shape:
  • can you sort these shapes by common properties (number of sides? number of corners?)
  • can you create a pattern with these shapes?
  • can you spot these shapes anywhere?
