Unit K – Shape Matching

This maths scheme of work for Key Stage One gets the children to identify, describe and compare different 2D shapes by their matching individual properties including the number of sides, vertices and lines of symmetry. The class can use Venn diagrams and tables to illustrate how to sort shapes into matching sets.

Identify, describe and compare different 2D shapes by their matching individual properties including the number of sides, vertices and lines of symmetry

Lesson One : Shape Facts

Select and organise groups of shapes to match statements about their properties

Lesson Two : Mirror Lines

Identify and record where to find vertical lines of symmetry on different 2D shapes

Lesson Three : Shape Groups

Select and group sets of different 2D shapes by their matching vertical lines of symmetry

Lesson Four : Shape Patterns

Identify and describe some of the patterns that can be made using different sequences of 2D shapes

Lesson Five : Shape Changes

Explore and illustrate how to make patterns of 2D shapes by changing their size and position
