# Year 1 Shapes - 2D

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 in Maths and Numeracy for children aged 5 and 6 in year 1. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with recognising and naming common 2-D shapes.

Year 1 children will learn to recognise and name basic and common 2-D shapes such as squares, circles and triangles. They will use 2-dimensional shapes to make repeating patterns and, as these shapes are common to the real world, the children will be encouraged to spot and recognise them and also to correctly name them.
