# Shape and measures Maths Worksheets For Year 2 (age 6-7)

Expectations are high when it comes to shape in Year 2! Children are expected to describe, visualise, classify and draw a wide variety of 2D and 3D shapes. Reflective symmetry is introduced and the idea that an angle is a measure of turn is very important to understand, as well as introducing the right angle.

Standard metric measures are introduced, including metres, litres and kilograms. Our worksheets provide plenty of opportunity for practical work as well as reading the numbered divisions on a scale.
