Year 2 Space and shape worksheets by Subject
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!
A quarter turn is 90 degrees. A half turn is 180 degrees. A whole turn is 360 degrees. This is Jane’s bedroom, seen from above. Can you see her bed, window, door and teddy? Can you answer these questions about how may degrees she turns?
Draw these shapes as if someone has turned them around a little! Use a ruler to help you with the straight lines. If you get stuck, try turning the paper to look at the shape.
Can you match these words with the correct pictures – under, over, above, beside, opposite, in between.
Rulers at the ready! Estimate how long you think each of these items is. (An estimate is a ‘clever guess’.) Then measure with your ruler. Were you right?
Draw pictures to match these words: on top of; beside; in between; opposite; underneath; above; in front of; behind.
Find a ruler (for drawing straight lines) and some coins (to help you draw circles). Draw a picture using: 5 circles; 6 squares; 4 rectangles; 3 semi-circles; 2 triangles; 1 hexagon; 1 pentagon.
Practise drawing the following shapes: a semi-circle; a shape with 4 corners; an octagon; a shape with 3 sides; a hexagon; a shape with no corners; a shape with 4 equal length sides; a shape with 1 side; a pentagon. You might find you have the same shape in more than one box. A ruler will help you draw straight lines.
Fill in the 2D shape properties chart for these shapes with the name of the shape and how many sides it has.
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!
Complete these pictures to show the shape reflected in the dotted line of symmetry. You could use a small mirror to show what the other half of the shape should look like.
Add an extra learning dimension to family game time – try one of our Cool Maths board games and help reinforce your child's knowledge of number bonds, percentages and fractions while you play. Compiled by deputy headteacher Matt Revill and packed with 20 games, this maths learning pack covers all the key skills your child will need to master as part of the primary numeracy curriculum.
This activity gives your child practice at identifying a series of regular and irregular five- and six-sided shapes.
This Year 2 maths download will help your child to recognise reflective symmetry in familiar 2D shapes and patterns.
Worksheet with circular diagrams for your child to add arrows demonstrating clockwise and anti-clockwise.
An activity to do at home, consisting of cutting out the names of 3D shapes and then labelling relevant objects at home.
A picture of a house incorporating various 2D shapes for children to colour in given colours.
