    Hello! Thank you for making this resource available so I can use it as a visual aid for my class. However, going over the material, I noted that the page for the oblong has the wrong shape (a yellow rectangle). Hope you'll still be able to correct the page. Thank you.

      Hi CarlVega,
      I have asked our lovely Design Team for an alternative oblong version of this resource for you and they will be in touch with you soon if they think they can make this. I hope you have a lovely day :)

      Hi msmary64,
      Great to hear it will be so useful :) Thanks for your feedback!

  • Mar 20th

    These are lovely and almost perfect for my Year 3 children to review describing features of 2D shapes. It would be very useful if you also had a set of large IRREGULAR shapes to cut out and include in the activity, particularly pentagons, hexagons, heptagons and octagons as my class struggle to identify irregular shapes still.

    Smart play book! Calling out the shape for the kids to find and jump or hope onto the shape called. Complicating the game by giving directions such as "walk on your heels to the oblong, tiptoe to the square, and hope four times on the kite.
