'Measuring and Recognising Different Types of Angle' worksheet

Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Maths and Numerical Reasoning

Curriculum subtopic:   2D Shapes: Circles, Angles and Bearings

Worksheet Overview

In this worksheet, you must measure angles and say which type of angle they are.


Measure these angles, using a protractor.  Say whether they are acute (less than 90°), a right angle (= 90°), obtuse (between 90° and 180°) or reflex (more than 180°).

An angle measures the rotation of one line segment on to another. Angles are measured in degrees, °.



AB is turned through 50° to coincide with AC. The angle is labelled BAC.




A quarter rotation measures 90° and is marked with a square.

A half rotation measures 180°.

A complete rotation measures 360°.
