In the 'Max Maths Year 1 Workbook', young learners are introduced to the concept of grouping shapes through a variety of engaging activities. On page 131, titled 'Practice 3: Grouping shapes', students are asked to observe sets of shapes and identify the criteria used for grouping them. They must tick the appropriate boxes that apply to each set, based on characteristics such as shape, colour, size, number of vertices, and number of sides. This exercise helps children to recognise patterns and categorise shapes based on their properties.

Moving on to page 132, the workbook challenges students to identify the odd one out within groups of shapes. By circling the shape that does not fit the common grouping criteria, children develop their analytical skills and attention to detail. The subsequent page, 133, presents a task where Toby has grouped 8 shapes into four categories. Students must circle the correct attributes for each group, choosing between options like big or small and red or grey. Finally, page 134 encourages hands-on learning as children are directed to create their own groups of circles by size, groups of shapes by colour, and groups of shapes by shape, reinforcing their understanding of sorting and classifying geometric figures.
