Maths this week would have introduced to another new exciting topic. We would used our knowledge and understanding to revisit the 'Properties of Shape'.
This unit focuses on the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. Children will learn to describe and sort shapes based on the shapes’ mathematical properties, using the correct terminology. In addition to this children will learn to describe and categorise shapes based on their number of sides, vertices, edges and faces.
This week's learning would have afforded the pupils more practical learning and allow them to explore shape within the local environment.
Monday - Shape hunt
Spend Monday exploring shapes around your home. Can you make a list of all the objects you found/ take a photo and send them into dojo for us to see! This should help you to remember some of the names of 2D and 3D shapes.
Challenge - could you record the shapes that you have found in a tally chart? There is a worksheet attached below that you could use/ gives you some inspiration on how to create your own tally chart.
Tuesday - Shapes that you can see!
Wednesday - 3D shape robots
Thursday - Sorting 2D and 3D shapes
Friday - Using a net to make a cube (dice)
On Friday we would have explored nets and how to use a net to make a 3D shape. Use the template above to create your dice. Don't forget not to cut off the flaps! Before you begin to cut the template I would recommend labelling your dice with either numbers or dots to 6 (it's a bit tricky doing this once you've stuck your dice together!)
Then you can use your dice to play some games!
- Roll your dice twice and add those numbers together
- Roll your dice once and add that same number twice to practice your doubles
- Roll your dice once and then work out what other number you need to make a number bond to 10/20
