# Year 2 Shapes - Describing 2D Shapes

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 6 and 7 in year 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with naming and describing 2D shapes and related everyday objects fluently.

When talking about 2-dimensional shapes and other related objects, Year 2 children will understand that they can use different words to describe their properties. They will use language such as sides, edges, corners and faces and recognise that some shapes have the same name but may look different.

This quiz will familiarise your child with the language used to describe 2-D shapes so that they can accurately name them and other related objects.
