Years 3 & 4: Geometry

This list consists of activities, games and videos designed to support the new curriculum programme of study in Years 3 and 4. Containing tips on using the resources and suggestions for further use, it covers:

Year 3: Draw 2-D shapes and make 3-D shapes using modelling materials, recognise 3-D shapes in different orientations and describe them, recognise angles as a property of shape or a description of a turn, identify right angles, recognise that two right angles make a half-turn, three make three quarters of a turn and four a complete turn, identify whether angles are greater than or less than a right angle, identify horizontal and vertical lines and pairs of perpendicular and parallel lines.

Year 4: Compare and classify geometric shapes, including quadrilaterals and triangles, based on their properties and sizes, identify acute and obtuse angles and compare and order angles up to two right angles by size, identify lines of symmetry in 2-D shapes presented in different orientations, complete a simple symmetric figure with respect to a specific line of symmetry, describe positions on a 2-D grid as coordinates in the first quadrant, describe movements between positions as translations of a given unit to the left/right and up/down,  plot specified points and draw sides to complete a given polygon.
