## What is this 2D shapes worksheet for year 3?

This 2D Shapes Worksheet Year 3 resource is a great way of assessing student familiarity with 2D shapes and the differences between them. Featured 2D Shapes include: For each 2D shape, students must write down the individual properties and distinguishing features.

## What are sysymmetry worksheets?

Symmetry worksheets consist of a variety of skills to understand the lines of symmetry in different shapes. Exercises to identify and draw the lines of symmetry, complete the shapes, count the lines of symmetry in each shape, to identify symmetrical or asymmetrical shapes and to determine the perimeter of shapes are given here for practice.

How many lines of symmetry does an oblong shape have?

Note an oblong has 2 lines of symmetry in a cross pattern but NOT diagonal symmetry. Use rulers (see through better) to draw the lines of symmetry and mirrors to check if shapes have symmetry.

How can These sheets help my child learn about shapes?

Using these sheets will help your child to: know the properties of a range of 2d shapes; recognise that some shapes can also be described as being other shapes; e.g. a square is also a rhombus; recognise and understand right angles, parallel lines, lines of symmetry; develop their geometric reasoning skills.

### How many questions are there about 2D and 3D shapes?

The Information below will give an overview of the topic and we have included a detailed worksheet with full answers. The worksheet includes 30 2D and 3D shapes questions and is relevant for KS2 pupils approaching their SATS test. If you are not ready to download the worksheets yet, then read on for some information about 2D and 3D shapes.

### How do you teach shapes to children?

They have to name the shape and describe the shapes properties. I gave the lowest of the group a word bank to select from. This would be ideal to refresh memories of 2d shape or to support teaching and learning of 2d shape. It would be good to have the shapes out too so the children can handle the shapes.

What will happen at the end of KS2?

Towards the end of KS2 this work will be brought together and revised so that children have an in-depth knowledge of 2d and 3d shapes so that they can describe them, draw them and discuss angles within shapes and lines of symmetry. They will be able to name a series of shapes and identify the key elements of those shapes.
