Year 2 Shapes - Comparing and Sorting
Three dimensional shapes have height, width and depth.

Year 2 Shapes - Comparing and Sorting

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 comparing and sorting common 2-D and 3-D shapes and everyday objects.

When talking about, comparing and sorting common shapes, Year 2 children will 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 look different.

This quiz will help your child to learn the language used to describe, compare and sort everyday, common shapes.
