National Curriculum: Geometry - Properties of Shapes - Year 6

  • draw 2-D shapes using given dimensions and angles
  • recognise, describe and build simple 3-D shapes including making nets
  • compare and classify geometric shapes based on their properties and sizes and find unknown angles in any triangles, quadrilaterals, and regular polygons
  • illustrate and name parts of circle, including radius, diameter and circumference and know that the diameter is twice the radius
  • recognise angles where they meet at a point, are on a straight line, or are vertically opposite, and find missing angles.

Non-Statutory Guidance

Pupils draw shapes and nets accurately, using measuring tools and conventional markings and labels for lines and angles.

Pupils describe the properties of shapes and explain how unknown angles and lengths can be derived from known measurements.

These relationships might be expressed algebraically for example:

d = 2 × r ; a = 180 – (b + c).
