Maths - classifying and sorting 2D shapes

In Maths, the children have been learning about the properties of 2D shapes.  They have used properties such as acute and obtuse angles and parallel and perpendicular sides to sort and classify them.  The children explained their thinking using these properties and enjoyed playing thinking skills games such as 'The odd one out' and 'Same/different' to really understand what makes each shape different from the others.  This learning was then used to classify and sort many different types of quadrilaterals and triangles.
