Properties of shapes

Properties of shapes planning and resources for progression across KS1 and KS2.

Teaching about shapes and their properties to ensure progression across every primary school class from Year 1 to Year 6 can be challenging. That's why we've created a complete curriculum of Maths lesson plan packs for teaching all about the properties of shapes.

Created by primary teachers to ensure excellent coverage of all National Curriculum objectives for the shape programme of study, these fun, highly-differentiated lesson plans include detailed slides and a variety of resources including shapes worksheets, games, questions, practical Maths investigations and plenty of supporting materials to teach pupils about shape properties.
