Year 2 Shapes - Vocabulary

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 understanding and using vocabulary associated with shapes.

When learning about shapes, Year 2 children begin to understand that they can use different words to describe their properties. They will use language such as sides, edges or vertices, corners and faces and recognise that some shapes have the same name but may be slightly different, for example an equilateral triangle is different to an isosceles.

This quiz will help children to use and to understand the language of shapes.
