Testimonials

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.

  • KS1.Y2 – KS1 Year 2
    • Year 2 programme of study
      • KS1.Y2.G.PS – Geometry - properties of shapes

        • Pupils should be taught to:

          • KS1.Y2.G.PS.2 – Identify and describe the properties of 3-D shapes, including the number of edges, vertices and faces

  • KS2.Y5 – KS2 Year 5
    • Year 5 programme of study
      • KS2.Y5.G.PS – Geometry - properties of shapes

        • Pupils should be taught to:

          • KS2.Y5.G.PS.1 – Identify 3-D shapes, including cubes and other cuboids, from 2-D representations

  • Year 2
    • Measurement and Geometry
  • 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

      • 5.GM.5 – Draw plan, front, and side views of objects

  • 6 – Year 6
    • 6.GM – Geometry and measurement
      • 6.GM.3 – Sort two- and three-dimensional shapes (including prisms), considering given properties simultaneously and justifying the decisions made

      • 6.GM.6 – Draw or make objects, given their plan, front, and side views

  • 1 – Grade 1
    • 1.G – Geometry
      • Mathematics

        • 1.G.2 – Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape.(Students do not need to learn formal names such as “right rectangular prism.”)

  • 2 – Grade 2
    • 2.G – Geometry
      • Mathematics

        • 2.G.1 – Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. (Sizes are compared directly or visually, not compared by measuring.) Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
