What are the 12 characteristics?

The EYFS framework refers to the 12 characteristics of everyday objects and shapes.

What are they?

The framework states:

'They explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them'

However, if you select and copy the section from the framework, you get the page number where the text breaks over the page and as the majority of the text is on page 12, it adds a '12' into the selection.

Thank you so much for your help - that's exactly what I did.  Amusingly when I googled the 12 characteristics I found the statement with the number 12 in on quite a few school websites!  Never any details of what the 12 are though...... :-)
