This collection is one of our Primary Curriculum collections - tasks that are grouped by topic.

### Cubes Cut into Four Pieces

### Exploded Squares

### Paper Partners

### Inside Triangles

### Poly Plug Rectangles

### Shapes in the Bag

### Building Towers

### Exploring 2D Shapes

### Making Footprints

### Making a Picture

### Data shapes

Sara and Will were sorting some pictures of shapes on cards. "I'll collect the circles," said Sara. "I'll take the red ones," answered Will. Can you see any cards they would both want?

### Three Squares

What is the greatest number of squares you can make by overlapping three squares?

### Overlaps

What does the overlap of these two shapes look like? Try picturing it in your head and then use some cut-out shapes to test your prediction.

### Jig Shapes

Can you each work out what shape you have part of on your card? What will the rest of it look like?

### What's happening?

Shapes are added to other shapes. Can you see what is happening? What is the rule?

### Always, Sometimes or Never? KS1

Are these statements relating to calculation and properties of shapes always true, sometimes true or never true?

### Let's Investigate Triangles

Vincent and Tara are making triangles with the class construction set. They have a pile of strips of different lengths. How many different triangles can they make?

### Colouring Triangles

Explore ways of colouring this set of triangles. Can you make symmetrical patterns?

### Chain of Changes

Arrange the shapes in a line so that you change either colour or shape in the next piece along. Can you find several ways to start with a blue triangle and end with a red circle?

### Complete the Square

Complete the squares - but be warned some are trickier than they look!

### Shapely Lines

This challenge invites you to create your own picture using just straight lines. Can you identify shapes with the same number of sides and decorate them in the same way?

### Paper Patchwork 1

Can you work out what shape is made when this piece of paper is folded up using the crease pattern shown?

### Paper Patchwork 2

Have a go at making a few of these shapes from paper in different sizes. What patterns can you create?

### Triangle or No Triangle?

Here is a selection of different shapes. Can you work out which ones are triangles, and why?

### Building with Solid Shapes

We have a box of cubes, triangular prisms, cones, cuboids, cylinders and tetrahedrons. Which of the buildings would fall down if we tried to make them?

### Skeleton Shapes

How many balls of modelling clay and how many straws does it take to make these skeleton shapes?

### Matching Triangles

Can you sort these triangles into three different families and explain how you did it?
