Google classroom: 2D shapes

On google classroom, you will find a sheet about 2D shapes and their properties.


We've learnt all about parallel lines and perpendicular lines, and learnt to identify them in new shapes we’ve learnt like quadrilaterals, rhombus, kite and parallelogram.


Put your knowledge to the test in this activity that requires you to decide if certain statements are true or false, match the shape to its description, as well explain your reasoning.

Over the Christmas holiday, the spelling you have to learn are those that have the letters ‘gh’ in them.

The really tricky bit is that the ‘gh’ sounds different depending on the word, which means you need to remember how to read them, as well as how to spell them!

  1. naughty
  2. enough
  3. thought
  4. caught
  5. although
  6. through
  7. weight
  8. tough
  9. height
  10. eighth


Remember to look, say, cover, write and check the words to help you learn them. They will be tested the first Friday back from the holidays. Good luck!
