2D and 3D Shapes
Being able to identify different shapes provides an important foundation to a range of numeracy skills. The four word lists we have created all about shapes will help children to recognise and name different shapes and their attributes.
Our 2D Shapes and 3D Shapes resources focus on a range of shapes, in just black and white to highlight the outline of the shape. The other resources, 2D Shapes - Colours and 3D Shapes - Colours, feature the same shapes but in a wide range of colours. These resoures aim to develop children's comprehension and ability to identify different shapes and colours.
Understanding shapes helps children to make connections between objects and be more aware of the world around them. A great way to develop upon these resources is to ask children to look for certain shapes and colours in their home, school and while you're out and about to relate learning to everyday life.
