Key Stage 1 Properties of Shapes Maths Autumn Term Year 2

The properties of polygons and a range of 'special' quadrilaterals are explored in this Complete Series of five Geometry - properties of shape Year 2 Maths lessons. The included slides explain a range of mathematical concepts regarding the properties of shapes your children will already be familiar with. There are also plenty of opportunities for your class to build on their knowledge of mathematical vocabulary, as new language is gradually introduced in each lesson.

 
#TheCompleteSeries5lessons

Every lesson in this downloadable series of Year 2 Shapes lessons includes a lesson plan, slideshow presentation, differentiated worksheets and a range of printable resources.

#Lesson1Polygons

This Polygons Year 2 2D Shape lesson will get your children thinking more deeply about the properties of different shapes by comparing and sorting regular and irregular polygons. The included slides explain in clear, simple terms what the differences are, and demonstrate simple, practical methods children can use to measure and check shapes. Following this, choose from the two learning activities, both of which will get your class identifying, comparing and making or shading 2D polygons.

This downloadable lesson contains a detailed lesson plan, slideshow presentation and printable teaching resources.

 

What's included:

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Irregular polygon cards
  • Differentiated worksheets
  • Writing/drawing frame
#Lesson2Quadrilaterals

Introduce mathematical vocabulary to describe polygons using this Year 2 Quadrilaterals Maths Lesson and answer the question 'What is a quadrilateral?'. The included slides explain in clear, simple terms what quadrilaterals are, and challenge children to name and compare a range of shapes including squares, oblongs, rhombuses and kites. Following this, you can choose from the two included activities, either of which will get your class exploring the properties of quadrilaterals in tessellations.

This downloadable lesson includes a lesson plan, slideshow presentation and printable teaching resources.

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Differentiated worksheets
#Lesson3SpecialQuadrilaterals

With this Quadrilaterals Year 2 lesson, your class will explore the differences between rhombuses and other quadrilaterals. Your children are introduced to two ways of describing shapes according to the lengths of their sides and the size of their corners. The lesson explains the term 'angle' to your class, and your children are challenged to make, label and describe a range of different quadrilaterals.

This downloadable lesson contains a lesson plan, slideshow presentation and printable teaching resources.

#Lesson4SymmetricalShapes

This practical Symmetry Year 2 Symmetrical Shapes Maths lesson will increasing your classes understanding of 2D shapes. By using a vertical mirror line, children can explore the properties of a range of 2D shapes, find lines of symmetry and draw symmetrical polygons in either of the two included activities. The included slides explain what symmetry is, and how to use a mirror to find it.

This downloadable lesson includes a lesson plan, slideshow presentation and printable teaching resources.
