To compare and classify 2D shapes

In this lesson, you will be revising the names of different types of 2D shapes. We will be looking at what these shapes have in common with each other and what makes them different. We will learn the difference between regular and irregular shapes and use correct mathematical language to discuss their features. We will also use prior knowledge about types of angles to help describe the properties of a shape.
