Understanding properties of shape
2. Pupils should be taught to:
 recognise right angles, perpendicular and parallel lines; know that angles are measured in degrees and that one whole turn is 360 degrees and angles at a point total 360 degrees, then recognise that angles at a point on a straight line total 180 degrees; know that the sum of the angles of a triangle is 180 degrees
 visualise and describe 2D and 3D shapes and the way they behave, making more precise use of geometrical language, especially that of triangles, quadrilaterals, and prisms and pyramids of various kinds; recognise when shapes are identical
 make and draw with increasing accuracy 2D and 3D shapes and patterns; recognise reflective symmetry in regular polygons; recognise their geometrical features and properties including angles, faces, pairs of parallel lines and symmetry, and use these to classify shapes and solve problems

visualise 3D shapes from 2D drawings.
Note for 2c: ICT opportunity: Pupils could use object drawing software to plan alternative layouts for a room.
