How do we get the square pyramidal shape?

Square pyramidal shapes are the results of a octahedral electron arangement with one lone pair. The lone pair takes the place of one of the polar atoms. The resulting shape is the central atom with one polar atom and 4 equatorial atoms in a square pyramidal shape.

A square pyramidal has the VSEPR formula AX5E, or the octahedral electron configuration, but with one lone pair.
