These lessons are a great way to learn names of 2D shapes and kick off your Year 1 class's learning about the properties of shape. The lessons start by encouraging children to think carefully about the differences between 2-D and 3-D shapes, they'll go on to learn about simple polygons, circles and semicircles. The included activities and printable resources, get your class sorting, drawing and making shapes, all the while building up a bank of mathematical vocabulary they can use to describe shape with increasing confidence.
