Sort 3D Shapes Lesson

This Year 2 Sort 3D Shapes lesson covers the prior learning of sorting 3D shapes based on their type, before moving onto the main skill of sorting 3D shapes based on their properties.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for the step. 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.
