Exploring 2D shapes – 1RED

Today in 1Red the children have been developing and furthering their knowledge of 2D shapes.

We read the story ‘The dinosaur who pooped Christmas’ and identified all the 2D and 3D shapes in the story. The children were then challenged to use only 2D shapes to create their own dinosaur…


What shapes can you see in my dinosaur?

How many triangles have I used?

How many circles have I used?

Where is the biggest rectangle?

How many sides does a diamond have?

What colour is the diamond?


What shapes can you see in our drawings?
