Unit: 2-D Shape and Symmetry


15 lessons

Shape and symmetry: To identify acute and obtuse angles

In this lesson, you will recap on the names of different types of angles. We will be looking specifically at acute and obtuse angles today and exploring where they can be found. We will learn what makes an angle acute or obtuse and how they are different. We will learn to estimate and order angles and how to draw examples of both acute and obtuse angles, using the knowledge we have. We will practise with accuracy and precision when drawing angles.

To compare and classify 2D shapes

In this lesson, you will be revising the names of different types of 2D shapes. We will be looking at what these shapes have in common with each other and what makes them different. We will learn the difference between regular and irregular shapes and use correct mathematical language to discuss their features. We will also use prior knowledge about types of angles to help describe the properties of a shape.
