What's in the bag?

Today in maths we started looking at 2D shapes.

The shared area was a buzz of shape hunters, all on the look out for shapes.

In class we were describing shapes in feely bags. Mohammed told us that his shape had 4 sides and 4 corners. Can you guess what it is? ...

We couldn't either so we asked Mohammed to give us more information. Mansour offered up an idea to Mohammed about the sides, Mansour said "the same or different?" Mohammed told us the sides were 2 long and 2 short. We guessed it was a rectangle! And we were right.

Can you describe a shape for us in the comments so we can guess what it is?


  1. Doves are going to give you some shape clues, can you guess the shape?
    It has 3 sides.
    The sides are straight.
    It has 3 corners.

  2. HI there Larks...
    Can you guess this shape? It has 1 side and NO edges. Do you know what it is?

    1. From Tarek. It's a circle.

    2. From Tarek. Can you guess what the shape is? It has 4 sides and all sides are the same. It has 4 corners and 12 faces. What am I ?
