What a brilliant site you have!!! I love it, especially as it saves me hours and hours of hard work. Others who haven't found your site yet don't know what they are missing!

It is quite frankly the best money I have ever spent on my child. I really cannot thank you enough for providing this, it really is brilliant.

You have the most amazing program. Everybody loves it and the student's results have been in the high 90%'s, it's definitely due to your program.

  • KS2.Y3 – KS2 Year 3
    • Year 3 programme of study
      • KS2.Y3.G.PS – Geometry - properties of shapes

        • Pupils should be taught to:

  • 4 – Year 4
    • 4.GM – Geometry and measurement
      • 4.GM.2 – Sort objects and two- and three-dimensional shapes by two features simultaneously

  • 5 – Year 5
    • 5.GM – Geometry and measurement
      • 5.GM.2 – Sort two- and three-dimensional shapes, considering the presence and/or absence of features simultaneously and justifying the decisions made

  • 3 – Grade 3
    • 3.G – Geometry
      • Mathematics

        • 3.G.1 – Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.

  • 4 – Grade 4
    • 4.G – Geometry
      • Mathematics

        • 4.G.1 – Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.

        • 4.G.2 – Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles.
