Year 1 Term 2-1 Week 03 Day 1 - 2d shape properties

A differentiated starter, introduction for both ActivInspire and Smartboard, and 3 way differentiated activity with an extension activity for use in Continuous Provision and AFL / Next Steps plenary class activity supported by a youtube video of the complete lesson for distance learning.

Learning Objective: To recognise and name common 2-D shapes, including rectangles (including squares), circles and triangles.
This lesson consists of:

  • A differentiated starter – where children use a 100 square to recognise ten more and ten less of a given set of numbers represented by ten bars and one cubes.

  • An Interactive Whiteboard teaching introduction for both Notebook and ActivInspire flipchart where the class works through a series of different shapes identifying the key properties which then can be used to create a working wall.

  • A youtube video link for distance learning introducing the starter, the main part of the lesson and the AFL / Next Steps plenary.

  • A set of differentiated tasks, where children identify different shapes and draw examples of their own.

  • A final AFL / Next Steps task, where children apply their knowledge of the properties of 2d shapes to describe a given shape.
