  • In this lesson, we will start to understand what the word 'angle' means. We will begin to identify angles within objects and shapes before we start to compare the size of angles.

  • In this lesson, we will review what an angle is. We will begin to explore various angles that are found inside 2D shapes and identify patterns between the number of sides and the number of angles.

  • In this lesson, we will build on our angle knowledge by introducing the terms 'acute' and 'obtuse' for those angles which are smaller (acute) and greater (obtuse) than right angles. We will have time to look at these angles separately and within different shapes.

  • In this lesson, we will revisit our knowledge of angles. We will revise what is meant by right, acute and obtuse angles. We will then have an opportunity to identify these angles and draw them.

  • In this lesson, we will build on our knowledge of angles, in particular right angles, and learn to identify perpendicular lines. We will look at these individually and within 2D shapes, as well as having a chance to find these ourselves.

  • In this lesson, we will look in detail at horizontal and vertical lines and how these relate to perpendicular pairs of lines. We will then identify where we find these in the real world and begin to draw them.

  • In this lesson, we will revisit pairs of parallel and perpendicular lines. We will look at how they differ and what they have in common, as well as where they occur in 2D shapes.
