Year 5 Symmetrical Shapes

This week’s learning has been about shapes.  We have been identifying lines of symmetry on different shapes and have been creating images by reflecting them along a mirror  line.  Using our display and what you have learnt this week answer the questions below:-

Shapes

 

Can you identify how many lines of symmetry these shapes have?

          Triangle                                   Square                                                

triangle                       Square

                       Rectangle                      Hexagon                                                   

rectangle   hexagon

                   Octagon                                      Pentagon       

    Octagon                 Pentagon

 

Can you name which lines of symmetry you have found?

Does this logo have any line of symmetry? Explain your answer.

We will be putting a QR code on our display so you can scan and answer the questions in class as well.

28 thoughts on “Year 5 Symmetrical Shapes

  1. The triangle has one vertical line of symmetry. the square has 4 lines: 2 diagonal lines of symmetry 1 vertical and one horizontal.
    The rectangle has 2 lines of symmetry 1 vertical 1 horizontal.The hexagon has 6 lines of symmetry 4 diagonal 1 horizontal 1 vertical.
    The octagon has 8 lines of symmetry.The pentagon has 1 vertical line of symmetry.The logo has no lines of symmetry because the letter s is not symmetrical.

  2. You have learnt a lot in Shape week. Some of you thought the Superman logo is symmetrical. I can see why you said this as you are looking at the outside of the shape however the S inside is not the same on both sides. Well done a good effort Year 5.

  3. The triangle has one line of symmetry which is vertical. The square has four lines of symmetry two are diagonal one is horizontal and one is vertical. The rectangle has two lines of symmetry one horizontal and one vertical.The hexagon has six lines of symmetry. The octagon has eight lines of symmetry because it has eight edges.A pentagon has five lines of symmetry because it has five edges.
    The superman logo has no lines of symmetry because of the “S”. If you put a vertical line through the middle of the logo the letter wouldn’t be the same on both sides.

  4. TRIANGLE:1 line of symetry.1 vertical.
    SQUAERE:4 lines of symetry.1 vertical,1 horizontal,2 diaginal.
    RECTANGLE:2 lines of symetry.1 vertical,1 horizontal.
    HEXAGON:2 lines of symetry.1 vertical,1 horizontal.
    OCTOGON:2 lines of symetry.1 vertical,1 horizontal.
    PENTOGON:1 line of symetry.1 vertical.
    SHAPES!!!!!!!!!!:):)

  5. the triangle has 1 line of symetry.
    the square has 4 lines of symetry.
    the rectangle has 2 lines of symetry
    the hexagon has 2 lines of symetry
    the octagon has 2 lines of symetry
    the Pentagon has 1 line of symetry

  6. The triangle has got 1 line of symmetry.It has a horizontal line.
    also the square has got 4 lines of symmetry.
    The rectangle has got 3 and the hexagon.
    The octogon has 8 because it has got 8 edges.
    The pentagon has got 1 vertacal line.

  7. When I drew the butterfly I orgernised the shape so everything be perfect.
    The triangle had 3 ways of symmetry the square had also 2 ways of symmetry.

  8. The triangle has one line of symmetry.
    the square has four lines of symmetry.
    the rectangle has two lines of symmetry.
    the hexagon has two lines of symmetry.
    the octagon has two lines of symmetry.
    the pentagon has one line of symmetry.

  9. Triangle
    1 vertical
    square
    vertical
    horizontal
    diagonal
    rectangle
    horizontal
    vertical
    hexagon
    vertical
    horizontal
    octagon
    horizontal
    vertical
    pentagon
    vertical

  10. A Triangle has 1️⃣ line of symectry and that starts from the top vertacy and goes vertically down.
    A square has 3️⃣ more symetrical lines than triangles because a square has 4️⃣ symetrical lines 1️⃣ goes horizontally 1️⃣ goes vertically and 2️⃣ go diagonally.
    Rectangles have only two, as it dose not have diagonal lines of symectry.
    A hexagon has 6️⃣ lines of symectry and has 6 edges.
    A octogan has 8️⃣ lines of symectry because it 8️⃣ edges.
    A pentagon has 5️⃣ lines of symectry.

    The super man sign has 1️⃣ line of symectry because it is almost the same as a triangle and triangle has 1️⃣ symetrical line.

  11. The triangle has 1 line of symutry.
    The square has 2 lines of symutry.
    The rectangle has 2 lines of symutry.
    The pentagon has 1 line of symutry.
    The superman logo has 2 lines of symutry because it’s the same on each side.

  12. triangle has 1 symmetrical line.Square has 2 symmetrical lines
    rectangle also has 2 symmetrical lines.
    Hexagon has a vertical and a horizontal line.
    Octagon has a vertical and horizontal symmetrical line.
    Pentagon has only a vertical line.

  13. When we draw the other half of picture
    we all had try our best to success .
    The triangle has 1 line of symmetry
    The square has 4 line of symmetry
    The rectangle has 2 lines of symmetry
    The pentagon has 1 line of symmetry
    The hexagon has 4 line of symmetry

  14. The triangle has 1 symmetrical line whereas the square has 3.the rectangle has 3 symmetrical lines and so does the hexagon.the octagon has 3 symmetry lines but the pentagon has 1.i have used vertical,horizontal and diagonal symmetry lines to find out how many symmetry lines the shapes have.the logo has no symmetry lines because the a is there and also if it had a symmetry line then the s wouldn’t be there and you will also get a vertical line.
    I love the display

  15. A square have a symmetry and it is regular because it has the same length in the side. Symmetry is real important in life like if you draw a butterfly it will have to be the same in each side. A polygon is straight lines which go on and on and on train tracks are polygons because it go on and on and on.

  16. the triangle has 1 symmetrecial line. however the square has 3 symmetrical lines.the rectangle has 3 symmetrical lines and the hexagon and the octagon but the pentagon has 1 symmetrical lines.
    The logo has no symmetrical lines because it is not the same on the other side and you couldn’t do it horizantal line or vertical line because it wouldn’t be perfect.

  17. The Triangle has 1 line of symmetry and the square has 2 lines of symmetry. Also the Rectangle has 2 lines of symmetry and the hexagon has 2 lines of symmetry. The Pentagon has 1 line of symmetry and the Octagon has 2 lines of symmetry. I have used vertical and horizontal lines. The logo doesn’t have any lines of symmetry because the letter S which stands for Superman isn’t equal. Also because the top of the S and the bottom of the S are not the same.

  18. The triangle has 1 symmetrical line whereas the square has 3.the rectangle has 3 symmetrical lines and so does the hexagon.the octagon has 3 symmetry lines but the pentagon has 1.i have used vertical,horizontal and diagonal symmetry lines to find out how many symmetry lines the shapes have.the logo has no symmetry lines because the a is there and also if it had a symmetry line then the s wouldn’t be there and you will also get a vertical line.

  19. 5.)horizontal and vertical
    6.)horizontal
    FINAL
    No because if you fold it vertical it would look like a boat & it would not be symetrical
    if you fold it horizontal the curvey part of the S would Isn’t on the opposite side
