Project
Objectives
Year 1
q Use everyday language to describe features of familiar 2-D shapes, including the circle, triangle, square, rectangle referring to
properties such as the number and types of sides.
q Make and describe models, patterns and pictures using construction kits, everyday materials. Begin to relate solid shapes to
pictures of them.
Year 2
q Use mathematical names for common 2-D shapes, including the pentagon, hexagon, octagon.

q Sort shapes and describe some of their features, such as the number of sides and corners.

q Make and describe shapes, pictures and patterns using, for example, solid shapes templates, squared paper.

NNS Framework
Section 5: Pages 82-83     Pupils should be taught to make models, shapes and patterns with increasing accuracy, and describe
their features.
Year 1: 2-D Shapes
q Make pictures and patterns using 2-D shapes such as: thin plastic shapes; pre-cut sticky shapes; stamping or printing shapes.
Describe the picture or pattern and say which shapes have been used to make it.
Year 2: 2-D Shapes
q Use 2-D shapes to make and describe pictures and patterns: by drawing around them, using squared paper.

Teaching notes
Project outline
To develop a frieze portraying a street scene created purely out of shapes. The project should develop the children’s
understanding of ‘road etiquette’, and you should take this opportunity to talk about various safety issues surrounding road use by
traffic and pedestrians alike.
The project will develop the children’s recognition of differing shapes, and reinforce their counting skills.

1: Introduction and looking at shapes
1 Introduce or remind the pupils about the basic shapes (circle, triangle, square, rectangle, star) and their properties. Have a
selection of plastic shapes on the table in front of each group of children – ask them to pick out the correct shape when you
mention a name or set of properties.
If Year 2 pupils, continue by introducing some new shapes and names (for example, pentagon, hexagon, octagon). Discuss the
similarities and differences between the shapes, using the correct mathematical vocabulary. (How many sides does this shape
have? What other shape do you know that has four corners?)
2 Put several shapes together to make a picture or pattern by drawing around the template
shapes on a white board or OHP (for example, a car).
Ask the pupils to describe the picture in shapes (e.g.: two squares and two circles).
Ask the pupils to make a simple pattern or picture with the shapes on the table in front of
them. Share examples with the class, including their descriptions.

2: The development of your own ‘Shape Street’
1 Using work in the previous session, recap on how to produce a picture of a person and vehicle using only shapes. Develop this
theme to cover other objects/buildings that would form part of a street picture.
2 Using either plastic shapes as templates or pre-cut sticky shapes or stamping/printing shapes, each pupil is to create their own
person or vehicle or type of street furniture. The end result should be the development of a class collage/frieze of a street profile.
If you have access to the Arrive Alive wall frieze, this can be a useful starting point for discussing what different vehicles and
people are needed in your class collage.
Each child then needs to write a description for his or her picture, to be displayed alongside their work as part of the collage. To
challenge the more able pupils, give specific instructions e.g.: Can you create a picture of a person including one oval and one
hexagon? Create a vehicle using more than five different shapes. How would you create a picture of a bicycle using shapes?
3 Make sure that Shape Street is displayed in a way that allows for ideal discussion points on road safety. For example, ensure that
traffic lights and a pelican crossing are included.

3: Remembering the Green Cross Code
1 Once the collage/frieze has been completed, it is a good time to re-enforce any previous safety issues encountered
throughout the Shape Street work. Discuss the use of the Green Cross Code, and how to cross the road safely, giving examples
of good places to cross Shape Street on the class collage.
2 Incorporate the Green Cross Code into the class display: (Or display The Green Cross Code poster if you have a copy.)

1 THINK FIRST
FIND THE SAFEST PLACE TO CROSS, THEN STOP.

2 STOP
STAND ON THE PAVEMENT NEAR THE KERB.

3 USE YOUR EYES AND EARS
LOOK ALL AROUND FOR TRAFFIC AND LISTEN

4 WAIT UNTIL IT’S SAFE TO CROSS
IF TRAFFIC IS COMING, LET IT PASS.

5 LOOK AND LISTEN
WHEN IT IS SAFE, WALK STRAIGHT ACROSS THE ROAD.

6 ARRIVE ALIVE
KEEP LOOKING AND LISTENING FOR TRAFFIC WHILE YOU CROSS.
