3D Shape Work
The children have been reinforcing their understanding of 3D shapes and their properties using a hands on approach. While moulding plasticine into the correct shapes they have been talking about the properties as well - how many faces, corners and edges they have. Then children have looked at cubes, cuboids, spheres, cylinders, pyramids, prisms and cones. They have also been having to decide whether the edges are straight or curved and whether the faces are flat or curved. There is a lot to remember! You could talk to them about this at home by sharing real objects that share the same 3D shape. For example, balls are spheres and cereal boxes are cuboids. Have fun!
A very proud 3D shape maker!
I did it all by myself!
Can you see my cuboid?
Now, I just need to check that I have not missed any out.
