In KS2 Maths as children advance to Year Five their knowledge of shapes will increase. By now they should know the names of the different 2D shapes from the circle to the decagon, and also many of the 3D shapes. They should also be able to recognise an equilateral, a right angle and an isosceles triangle and will now be taught about scalene and obtuse triangles and congruent shapes.
A circle and a triangle are both shapes. Did you know it is said that only a genius can draw a perfect circle? Have a go and see if you are a genius! There are various types of triangles, like Isosceles, scalene or equilateral, depending on the size of their angles.
Do you know the difference between an oblong and a rectangle? Can you tell an isosceles from a scalene triangle? See how much you remember about shapes by playing this quiz.
