all Space and shape worksheets
The area of a shape is the total amount of space that it covers. Can you work out the area of these shapes?
Can you translate and reflect these shapes?
Let's try working with scale factors. Can you increase this shape by a scale factor of 3?
Look at the pictures below to work out the answers to these angles and turns questions. You could try standing in for the girl in the picture and turning yourself, too! When you answer each of these questions, imagine that Claire has gone back to her starting position each time.
For each of the following shapes, say whether they are regular or irregular and name the shape. The first one has been done for you. You may want to use a ruler and protractor to check the sides and angles
How well do you know your triangles? Label each of these triangles to show which type you think it is.
Regular shapes have equal-length sides and all the internal angles are equal. Can you cut out the shapes and sort them into the Venn diagram? Then draw a circle around the regular shapes and write a definition of an irregular shape.
Can you help the frog to hop on the stones safely to the other side of the pond? He can only step on regular shapes. Is there more than one route option?
Have fun with irregular shapes with this four-in-a-row game.
See if you can find the parallel and perpendicular lines and right angles in this bird’s eye view of a football pitch.
Sam Samuels is standing on a football pitch. Which way will he be facing if he makes these turns?
Look at these pictures. Can you spot the 2D and 3D shapes listed? Once you find them, write the names over the top of each shape. Make sure you copy the spellings correctly!
Can you draw the next shape in each sequence?
Can you colour the squares so that each side of the picture is an exact mirror image?
Are you ready to uncover dastardly deeds and confront super-evil villains, armed just with your mathematical skills and lots of courage? Join Oscar Octo and Penelope Penta, agents for the Geometric World Spy Agency, to track down a mysterious nemesis. There'll be a few (ok, a load!) of number puzzles to solve along the way, all designed to challenge KS2 mathematicians to the limit. Will you accept your mission?
The line down the middle of a symmetrical shape (the same on both sides) is called the line of symmetry. The grid on this worksheet shows a quarter of a shape that has two lines of symmetry. Can you complete the shape? Use a mirror to help if you need to.
Can you follow these instructions and draw these shapes with right angles, sides and parallel lines?
This shape has a vertical mirror line. Can you shade in more of the small rectangles so that both sides of the shape are symmetrical?
The volume of a cube / cuboid = length x height x width. Look at the following shape pairs and estimate which has the bigger volume. Work out the volume with the formula; were you right?
A prism is a 3D shape with two identical ends and all flat sides. Its cross section is the same all along its length and always the same shape as its ends. The shape of the prism’s ends gives the prism its name (for example, the ends of a hexagonal prism are hexagons). Prisms have parallel planes, which means that they have faces that are parallel to each other (they always stay the same distance apart and will never meet).
