This Year 2 Recognise 2D and 3D Shapes lesson covers the prior learning of naming 2D and 3D shapes, before moving onto the main skill of recognising a wider variety of 2D and 3D shapes.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding.  The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning by completing an engaging extension task.
