  • Can you let me know what the 2nd shape would be called? Thanks

    • Hi there,
      The second shape in this resource is a parallelogram, our lovely design team have updated the resource to make this more obvious - I hope you find it useful!

    • Hello,
      I thought a parallelogram needed to have the sides parallel and also equal?

    • Hi makettles,
      Thanks for your comment. Our team are looking into this as we speak. We'll be in touch as soon as we have the correct answer:)

    • Hello again makettles :) Oops! You are correct - parallelograms need both sets of opposite lines to be parallel. This shape is a trapezium - thanks for spotting our slip up :)

  • I used this today with my Year 2 class and it was great. Would it be possible to add 'number of corners'  each shape has too? I did try on the editable version but it didn't work out.

    • Hi paresh.gaitonde,

    • Is this actually the case? We're having huge debates about it at school at the moment!

    • Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. In Primary schools it is common to teach that a circle has 1 curved side. However, it is also mathematically correct to say a circle has an infinite number of straight sides. I hope that this clarifies things. Have a lovely day :)
