GEOMETRY
shape properties
3G2

Identify horizontal,vertical lines and pairs of perpendicular and parallel lines

  3G3a

Draw 2-D shapes

  3G3b

Make 3-D shapes using modelling materials; recognise 3-D shapes in different orientations and describe them . Requires practical equipment to assess validly

STATISTICS 3S1

Interpret and present data using bar charts, pictograms and tables

  3S2

Solve one-step and twostep questions [eg: "How many more?" and "How many fewer?"] using information presented in scaled bar charts, pictograms and tables
