Geometry

Year 2 children have been working hard in numeracy and have been learning all about geometry. The focus for this lesson was for children to use their knowledge of the properties of 2-D shapes (sides/vertices-corners) and then create a selection of 2-D shapes on a digital geo-board. Children focused their efforts on creating a variety of 2-D shapes that included: a square, a rectangle, a triangle, a pentagon, a hexagon, a trapezium and a circle. Children used 3 different boards to achieve this.
