All of the mathematics of 2D and 3D shapes for primary schools. Recognize
and name some simple shapes and objects and use everyday language to
describe shape and function. Draw reasonable representations of simple
shapes. Copy reasonable representations of simple spatial patterns. Select
a simple shape from a common description of its features.Recognize and
name familiar two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes such as
triangle, square, rectangle, circle, cone, cube, cylinder, pyramid and
sphere. Sort two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes by given
criteria.Recognize congruency when handling shapes. Draw rectangles,
squares, triangles, rhombuses, octagons and hexagons freehand and with a
ruler. Explain the effect of simple flips, slides and turns on shapes.
Draw a mirror image of a given shape. Recognize straight lines, curved
lines, horizontal lines, vertical lines, diagonals and right angles.
Recognize and describe two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes such
as triangle, square, rectangle, circle, pentagon,hexagon, octagon,
trapezium, cone, cube, prism, cylinder, pyramid and sphere. Identify plane
shapes occurring as faces of 3D objects. Use terms such as face, base,
edge, vertex. Describe similarities and differences between shapes and
objects. Identify shapes or objects from geometric clues. Describe what is
not seen in a 3D picture. Predict and sketch the shape of a simple cross
section. Nets of prisms and pyramids. Tessellation. Lines of symmetry in
