LO: To use appropriate language to classify shapes.

2D SHAPES

  • Select simple shapes from common description of its features; for example. find a flat shape with four equal sides

  • Classify two-dimensional shapes according to the number of sides

  • Make plane shapes on a geo-board or using pattern blocks

  • Identify one property of a shape

  • Recognise lines, surfaces and planes, corners and boundaries of two-dimensional shapes

  • Use the features of two-dimensional shapes to make comparisons and contrasts

  • Arrange a collection of geometric shapes, such as a set of attribute blocks, using a Venn diagram, into subsets according to simple criteria

  • Recognise when one set of shapes is a subset of another set of shapes.

  • Identify two or more properties of a shape

  • Recognise congruence of two shapes

 

3D SHAPES

  • Recognise and name common three-dimensional shapes; for example. spheres, cubes, cones, cylinders

  • Identify where familiar three-dimensional objects occur or are used in everyday life

  • Identify by direct matching plane shapes occurring as faces of simple three-dimensional objects

  • Recognise lines, surfaces and planes, corners and boundaries; of three-dimensional objects including pyramids, cones and cylinders.

  • Pull apart three-dimensional shapes into their respective nets; for example. by cutting up boxes

  • Make cross-sections of solid objects and begin to visualise them

  • Make 3D models with clay, plasticine or cardboard

  • Interpret diagrams and sketches of simple 3D objects
