Year 4 Space and shape worksheets by Subject
A quadrilateral is a shape with four sides. Can you label each of these quadrilaterals to show what you think it is?
The area of a shape is the total amount of space that it covers. Can you work out the area of these shapes?
How well do you know your triangles? Label each of these triangles to show which type you think it is.
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?
Translating a shape means moving it up or down or sideways without it changing shape or size. This shape needs to be translated 4 squares right and 3 squares up. Can you redraw it in its new location?
Imagine an ant crawling around the outside of a shape. The distance the ant walks is the shape’s perimeter. Can you measure the sides of these shapes by counting the squares and work out their perimeters?
Father Christmas is stuck in a maze. Help him to find a way out so he can deliver your presents! Can you give Father Christmas instructions to the maze exit? Decide which way he should go, then write down your instructions using these commands. F = go forwards, R90 = turn right 90°, L90 = turn left 90° Your instructions might look like this: F\R90\F\L90… and so on. There are lots of different possible routes; try all the exits from the centre.
How many four-sided shapes with a perimeter of 24cm can you create on the squared paper?
Imagine an ant crawling around the outside of a shape. The distance the ant walks is the shape’s perimeter. Perimeter is usually measured in centimetres and metres. Can you work out the answers to these perimeter questions?
Something is symmetrical when both sides of it are the same when cut in half. The line down the middle of a symmetrical shape is called the line of symmetry or a mirror line. Can you draw the other half of each shape using reflectional symmetry? Use a mirror to check your work!
The line shows a journey taken by a ladybird. For each straight line, write down how many squares it has travelled and in what direction. The first three have been done for you.
Cut up these angles and group all the acute angles together and then all the obtuse angles together. Can you order the angles in each group by size? Remember: Angles smaller than 90o are acute. Angles larger than 90o are obtuse.
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!
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.
