Reception maths vocabulary: Shape and space

The vocabulary that young children are expected to know is quite challenging and none more so than in Shape and Space. Children are expected to be able to explore shapes, talk about their properties and know some quite tricky names of 2D and 3D shapes, including sphere, pyramid and cone.

This knowledge can only be gained with plenty of experience of handling and playing with shapes – don’t forget, the kitchen is a great place to be if you want to get the names of shapes into the conversation!
