# Year 1 Shapes - Everyday Objects

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 5 and 6 in year 1. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with relating shapes to everyday objects.

When talking about shapes, Year 1 children will begin to realise that some of the objects in the everyday world around them are similar to some of the shapes they have learnt about. They should be able to recognise that some everyday objects have particular shapes and may, for example, relate a box of cereal to a cuboid or relate a window to an oblong.
