2D and 3D shape


Can your child recognise the shapes below? Can they describe them to you? Can the explain the difference between 2D and 3D shapes?


How many sides does a pentagon have?

What is special about a square?

What do we call a six sided shape?

What shape is a cylinder?


I would like your child to go on a shape hunt around your house and garden to see what shapes they can find. Maybe they could use some shapes to create a shape picture or create a 3D junk model? Can they name the shapes they see?
