﻿ Year 4 Quadrilaterals Lesson - Classroom Secrets | Classroom Secrets

Y4 Mathematics

This Year 4 Quadrilaterals lesson covers the prior learning of describing 2D shapes and finding parallel and perpendicular lines, before moving onto the main skill of finding the characteristic of quadrilaterals.

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.

National Curriculum Objective
Mathematics Year 4: (4G2a) Compare and classify geometric shapes, including quadrilaterals and triangles based on their properties and sizes
