Geometry in Year 2

In Year 2 we have been looking at geometry and the properties of shape.

After being masters with 2D shapes we looked at how to describe 3D shapes and we came up with these questions to ask:

Is it solid? How many edges? How many faces? How many vertices?

We created a lift the flap book to describe some 3D shapes.

   
  We then began to look at ways to sort shapes using a Carroll diagram.

At first, we took part in a giant class Carroll diagram, sorting ourselves.

   

 Once we had practised we were then ready to try sorting some shapes.

   
    
 We used our knowledge and applied this to help us sort the shapes. As a challenge we then used our skills and spotted shapes that were in the wrong place…Miss Collins was trying to trick us but we are Geometry Maths Masters now and can’t be caught out!
