When a square is a rectangle and a parallelogram!

In Year Six we have been investigating the properties of 2D shapes. We have explored the parallel and perpendicular lines found in quadrilaterals and used this information to help us classify different shapes. We have also explored different types of triangles and practised drawing them (not always as easy as you think!)

We have discovered that a simple shape such as a square can also be classified as a rectangle, a rhombus and a parallelogram! Phew!
