KS1 Maths Quiz
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.

1. Question 1

This shape doesn’t have lines of symmetry from corner to corner like the square
2. Question 2

From each point to its opposite straight side
3. Question 3

The shape could be folded exactly in half from left to right or top to bottom
4. Question 4

From corner to corner, through the middle vertically and horizontally
5. Question 5

The shape can’t be folded in half exactly at all
6. Question 6

Try to picture where you could fold the shape exactly in half
7. Question 7

There is only one place where this shape could be folded exactly in half
8. Question 8

Only equilateral triangles have three lines of symmetry
9. Question 9

There is only one place this shape could be folded exactly in half – right down the middle
10. Question 10

Circles have infinite lines of symmetry – you can fold them exactly in half all the way around!
