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.

From corner to corner, through the middle vertically and horizontally
Question 9

4
The shape can’t be folded in half exactly at all
Question 10
It doesn’t have any
It only has one
It has four
Its lines of symmetry go on for ever
Circles have infinite lines of symmetry – you can fold them exactly in half all the way around!
