Those are the 2D shapes as far as Im aware. They need to know some 3D ones too. Try the framework on Standards for more info.

 

Good luck.

I have taught my children to say oblong rectangle! I have taught square, circle, oblong, triangle and extended HAPs to learning hexagon and pentagon.

 

With regard to 3D shapes I have taught cone, cube, sphere and cuboid, and extended my HAPs to learning cylinder as well. It doesn't state in EYFS which shapes. I have taught other shapes to those children who regualrly chose to play with shapes or construct shapes within their play if they can cope with it.
