These tasks all have one thing in common - they focus on geometry.  But what exactly do we mean by 'geometry'?  Well, it might be knowing about different kinds of shapes and being able to describe them; it could be about sorting shapes.  Geometry also involves understanding turning (or angles) and pattern.

We hope you enjoy having a go at these tasks, which will make use of your problem-solving skills as well as your geometrical skills!
