Block 3: Geometry
The weeks leading up to half term are taken up with the properties of shapes, including recognising right angles and sorting shapes according to their properties.
Find right angles in the world about us.
Recognise and draw right angles and various 2D shapes. A ruler is necessary.
Draw lines of symmetry and complete symmetrical patterns. Quite hard for young children and a mirror is useful!
Recognising the properties of triangles, rectangles, pentagons and hexagons.
Find the odd one out from a selection of shapes. Explain decisions made.
Recognising and sorting 5 and 6 sided shapes.
Can you draw and colour the missing shapes in these patterns?
More patterns, but there may be more than one possible pattern on some.
How many different shapes can be made from joining 4 squares?
