Geometry: Properties of quadrilaterals

Year 6 have started their unit of work on Geometry and today spent time exploring the properties of quadrilaterals, in preparation for problem solving over the next few days. They learned that it was often as important to be able to describe what properties quadrilaterals do not have (e.g., kites have no parallel edges) as it is to describe what properties they do have, in order to distinguish between them.
