Shape and Space
Sphero and Shapes
In this lesson your children will look at creating accurate 2D shapes by coding the sphero. For this activity you will need to download the Lightning Lab app.
Other Teaching Ideas:
1. Creating and measuring angles.
3. Problem solving and debugging.
Nets and Minecraft
In this lesson your children will be consolidating or highlighting their understanding of cube nets. The children will be using the Minecraft PE app to complete this activity.
Other Teaching Ideas:
1. Measuring volume
2. Following written instructions to create an object
3. Create square numbers
In this activity your children are working on coordinates.
They must read the coordinates and park the car accurately.
This is a flashcards resource linked to 2D shapes.
Your children can work on their recognition of the shapes and words.

2D Shapes and Geoboard
Create a variety of 2D shapes using the Geoboard app. You have also got the option to write the features of the shapes using the pen function.
Polygons and Quadrilaterals
A great sorting activity which reinforces the understanding on polygons and quadrilaterals.
Explore 3D shapes using this activity and talk about the features of each.
Your children must identify the shapes before they melt the ice cream.
The shapes are revealed little by little allowing time for discussions and predictions to take place. You can select one of the four areas to focus on.
Shapes and Words
A variety of shape related games for Foundation/ Early KS1 to help children identify shapes and also allow them to develop sight vocabulary of the names of shapes.
2D Shapes (regular and irregular)
A great resource to highlight the difference between regular and irregular 2D shapes.
Guess the Shape
You are given a clue to determine the shape. The children can choose from 3 levels of difficulty.
Features of Triangles
This resource allows your KS2 class to learn the features of the various types of triangles.
It covers right triangle, isosceles, scalene, acute, obtuse and equilateral.
At the end your class can have a go at identifying a few triangles.
Can your class identify the isosceles, right angle and scalene triangles and sort them?
All the angles are explored and placed in context in this resource. Great resource, especially for the boys.
Types of Angles
Learn the different types of angles and place them in order from smallest to largest.
This activity also explores right angles, half turns, full turns and obtuse, acute and reflex angles.
Explain Everything and Angles
This activity develops the children’s understanding of angles in a fun way. You can choose whether you want to measure different angles or focus on the names of the angles.
