Year 1 Autumn Term: Block 3 Geometry: Shape
Children will be introduced to a variety of 3D shapes including the cube, cuboid, cylinder, pyramid, cone and sphere. They will begin to recognise that a shape can have the same name but be a different size or orientation. Plenty of practical work needed here as children sort and name shapes.
2D shapes are also introduced, including triangles, squares, rectangles and circles.
Making patterns using these shapes will include using ordinal numbers to describe the patterns.
Maths Mastery: naming and sorting 2D and 3D shapes
Plenty of practical work needed here with 3D shapes as well as recognising and naming common 2D shapes.
