Year 3: Geometry: Properties of Shapes

New Maths Curriculum (2014): Year 3 objectives.

Pupils’ knowledge of the properties of shapes is extended at this stage to symmetrical and non-symmetrical polygons and polyhedra. Pupils extend their use of the properties of shapes. They should be able to describe the properties of 2-D and 3-D shapes using accurate language, including lengths of lines and acute and obtuse for angles greater or lesser than a right angle. 

Pupils should draw and measure straight lines in centimetres.
