2D and 3D shapes in KS1 In Year 1, children need to be able to recognise and name: 2D shapes including rectangles, squares, circle and triangles. 3D shapes including cubes, cuboids, pyramids and spheres. sort, make and describe common 2D and 3D shapes.

## What are the properties of shapes KS1?

What do children need to know about the properties of shapes in KS1?

• Right angles – Recognising 90° angles in shapes and real-life objects.
• Acute angles – Angles of less than 90°.
• Obtuse angles – Angles between 90° and 180°.
• Parallel – lines that are side by side and have the same distance continuously between them.

What shapes should children know in Year 1?

Your child should be able to recognise circles, triangles, rectangles, and other 2D shapes. They will know that a square is a special rectangle because all its sides and angles are equal.

What makes a shape 3D KS1?

3D shapes have three dimensions – length, width and depth.

### What is a 2D shape Year 1?

2D shapes contain only 2 dimensions and are flat e.g. square, rectangle, triangle, circle, hexagon, quadrilateral, trapezium, heptagon, octagon, nonagon, decagon, parallelogram, pentagon, rhombus, kite. 3D objects have three dimensions.

### What 2D shapes should YEAR 2 know?

Your child will identify 2D shapes such as squares, rectangles, oblongs, triangles, circles, ovals, and pentagons in pictures and in real life. They will learn to describe properties of 2D shapes using language such as side, straight, curved, corner, right angle, flat, and symmetrical.

What 3D shapes should YEAR 2 know?

Children recognise and sort 2-D shapes including circle, square, triangle, rectangle, pentagon, hexagon and octagon using a range of different orientations. Children should be encouraged to sort the shapes in more than one way.

Are objects 3D shapes?

3D shapes are solid shapes or objects that have three dimensions (which are length, width, and height) as opposed to two-dimensional objects which have only a length and a width.
