As children become more accurate with their drawing great fun can be had with 2D and 3D shape work. Polygons are drawn and classified and nets of 3D shapes are introduced. Lines of symmetry, as well as reflections and translations are introduced. Children will be expected to know that angles are measured in degrees and they will begin to compare and order angles.

Identifying 3D shapes including hexagonal prisms and tetrahedrons: quite difficult words for many children.
