Year 3 Space and shape worksheets
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.
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?
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?
Parallel lines are always the same distance apart. Perpendicular lines are at right angles to each other. Can you put these shapes into the correct place in the Carroll diagram?
A net is an arrangement of 2D shapes, joined edge to edge, that make a 3D shape when folded up. What 3D shape do you think this net will make?
Horizontal lines are lines that go across. Vertical lines are lines that go up and down. How many horizontal lines does this shape have? How many vertical lines does it have? How many right angles does it have? Can you explain what a right angle is? Remember that the corner of a sheet of paper or book is a right angle.
Welcome to Skull Rock! Use the map to find your way around. Can you read the compass directions and answer these questions?
Look at these shapes. Think about the statements in the table and draw each shape next to the statement that you think goes with it. You may need to use the corner of a book or piece of paper to check which angles are right angles.
Can you match these shapes with the correct definitions?
Look at these shapes. Can you say how many sides and angles each one has?
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 worksheet will enable children to differentiate between right angles, angles smaller than a right angle, and angles larger than a right angle. A fun visual activity.
This download explains what parallel lines are and encourages children to think about which examples fit the description.
This worksheet explains what perpendicular lines are. Children then need to choose which lines are perpendicular from a range of examples.
