Help your class learn more about shapes with this great 'Properties of 2D Shapes' scheme of work for Year 4. Your children will explore and identify a variety of quadrilaterals and triangles, learn how to calculate the perimeter and area of rectilinear shapes, and use their shape knowledge to classify shapes according to their properties.

 
#TheCompleteSeries5lessons

With everything you need to teach a whole week's worth of shape work, including lesson plans, engaging slides, activity ideas, differentiated worksheets, shape cards and much more, this 'Properties of 2D Shapes' scheme of work is the perfect way to get your class into shape!

#Lesson1Quadrilaterals

The first lesson Maths series focuses on quadrilaterals. To kick things off, find out what your class already know about 2D shape, then build on that by exploring the properties of a range of quadrilaterals. Go on to classify and sort shapes using lists, tables, Carroll diagrams and even ‘stained glass’ shape colour-coding pictures!
