Primary geometry: shape and space

Primary geometry: shape and space learning pack
Do you know your hexagons from your heptagons, your pentagonal pyramids from your octagonal prisms? From 2D shapes to angles and symmetry our seventy-page Primary Geometry: shape and space learning pack covers all aspects of the national curriculum (Shape and Space) and will ensure your child can use a protractor, translate a shape and look for a mirror line. Challenge them to a game of 3D shape dominoes, make a right-angle measurer and get started!
Key stage: EYFS, KS1, KS2

Geometry is a big part of the maths curriculum in primary school, but the tricky vocabulary and abstract nature of it can prove challenging for young children. Brush up on your own knowledge and consolidate what your child is learning at school with our Primary Geometry: shape and space learning pack, 70 pages of information, tips and practical activities written by primary school teacher Jane Homburg to help you recognise shapes, measure angles and calculate area and perimeter with ease.

In your Primary Geometry: shape and space learning pack you'll find:

  • A parents' introduction to primary geometry
  • A glossary to explain the tricky vocabulary
  • 50 + worksheets and games to put the theory into practice

Subjects covered include:

  • 2D shapes
  • 3D shapes
  • Angles (acute, obtuse, reflex and right angles)
  • Triangles (equilateral, right-angled, isosceles, scalene)
  • Perimeter
  • Area
  • Using nets to make 3D shapes
  • Rotating and translating shapes
  • Symmetry
  • Using a protractor
