Years 5 & 6: Geometry

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

Year 5: Identify 3-D shapes from 2-D representations, know angles are measured in degrees: estimate and compare acute, obtuse and reflex angles, draw and measure angles, identify: angles at a point, angles at a point on a straight line and a turn, multiples of 90 degrees, use the properties of rectangles to deduce related facts, missing lengths and angles, distinguish between regular and irregular polygons,  reflection and translation of shapes.

Year 6: Draw 2-D shapes using given dimensions and angles, recognise, describe and build simple 3-D shapes, compare and classify geometric shapes, find unknown angles in triangles, quadrilaterals and regular polygons, illustrate and name parts of circles, including radius, diameter and circumference and know that the diameter is twice the radius, recognise angles where they meet at a point, are on a straight line, or are vertically opposite, and find missing angles.
