Key Stage 1 Properties of Shapes Maths Summer Term Year 2

Build on your children's growing knowledge of the properties of 2-D and 3-D shapes with this five-lesson Year 2 shapes unit of work.

 
#TheCompleteSeries5lessons

'Let's Sort Shapes and Objects' includes detailed planning, engaging slides, worksheets, games and a choice of learning activities with every lesson. Your KS1 class will recap what they already know about the properties of a variety of shapes, then learn and practise a range of skills and methods for identifying, describing, sorting and classifying 2D and 3D shapes. During this unit, your class will create identification keys and determine whether statements about shapes are true or false, using reasoning skills to explain their decisions. In the final lesson, children will apply their understanding to identify 3-D shapes in real-life objects.

#Lesson1IdentifyDescribe2Dshapes

In this first lesson, children recap on the names and properties of some common 2D shapes. They will identify and describe 2D shapes as they develop an understanding of terms such as: sides, corners, regular, irregular, polygon and quadrilateral. Your class will use this knowledge to help them describe and distinguish between different shapes. In their independent activities, your children can use their knowledge of 2D shapes to play a game in pairs or match up descriptions to the correct shapes.

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

#Lesson2DescribeIdentify3Dshapes

During this Describe and Identify 3D Shapes lesson your children will recap on the vocabulary used to describe the properties of 3D shapes and to differentiate between them. In their independent activities, your class will play games where they use this vocabulary to describe the properties of 3D shapes to others.

#Lesson3Sorting2D3Dshapes

In this lesson, your children will sort 2D and 3D shapes by applying their understanding of the properties of shapes. They will learn how to use and create a simple identification key for a set of shapes. You class will apply this knowledge in their independent activities, where they will sort a set of shapes using an identification key. In the alternative activity, children are challenged to sort shapes into grids according to given labels.

#Lesson4ReasoningaboutShapes

During this Year 2 2D and 3D shape lesson your children will first apply their knowledge and understanding of shapes. Then they will compare the similarities and differences between the properties of different shapes and explore and discuss statements about different shapes. In their independent activities, your children will sort or write their own statements about different shapes. In the FSD? activity, children decide in groups whether a statement is always, sometimes or never true for the chance to win points.
