Sorting 3D Shapes on a Venn Diagram
Use a Venn diagram to sort a variety of 3D shapes according to their properties, including: whether they are pyramids or prisms, the number of faces, edges and vertices and whether they have a curved surface.

New Maths Curriculum:
Year 2: Identify and describe the properties of 3-D shapes, including the number of edges, vertices and faces
Year 2: Compare and sort common 2-D and 3-D shapes and everyday objects
Year 3: Draw 2-D shapes and make 3-D shapes using modelling materials; recognise 3-D shapes in different orientations; and describe them with increasing accuracy
Year 4: Compare and classify geometric shapes, including quadrilaterals and triangles, based on their properties and sizes
Year 5: Identify 3-D shapes, including cubes and cuboids, from 2-D representations
Year 6: Recognise, describe and build simple 3-D shapes, including making nets
Year 6: Compare and classify geometric shapes based on their properties and sizes and find unknown angles in any triangles, quadrilaterals, and regular polygons
KS2 Primary Framework:
Relate 2-D shapes and 3-D solids to drawings of them; describe, visualise, classify, draw and make the shapes (Block B)
Draw polygons and classify them by identifying their properties, including their line symmetry (Block B)
Identify, visualise and describe properties of rectangles, triangles, regular polygons (Block B)
Describe, identify and visualise parallel and perpendicular edges or faces; use these properties to classify 2-D shapes and 3-D solids (Block B)
