KS1 Maths Quiz
Year 2 Shapes - Properties of 2D Shapes
The way to see lines of symmetry is to imagine folding the shape into two matching halves - just like when you make a paper aeroplane.

Year 2 Shapes - Properties of 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 identifying and describing the properties of 2-D shapes, including the number of sides and line symmetry in a vertical line.

In KS1 children are taught to identify some of the properties of 2-dimensional shapes. Year 2 children begin to understand that some shapes have lines of symmetry. They will begin to explore this for themselves, perhaps by folding a shape exactly in half - the fold line then shows one line of symmetry.

This quiz will help children to identify the property of symmetry in a variety of 2-dimensional shapes.
