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.

Recap - 3D Shapes I Know

This is "3D Shapes I Know (song for kids)" by Andrea Robertson on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.

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!

On Tuesday we would like you to draw a room in your house and label it with all the shapes that you can see! These may be 2D or 3D shapes and don't forget to make sure you are using the correct shape names.

Wednesday - 3D shape robots

On Wednesday we would love to see some robots! Could you use 3D shapes to create a robot? You could use building toys such as lego, duplo or kinex or why not make your robot out of junk modelling materials that you have around the house! Alternatively use paper to cut shapes and collage them (like the photo above). Don't forget it is really important you label those shapes using the correct terminology!

Thursday - Sorting 2D and 3D shapes

On Thursday we would like to find out what you have learnt about 2D and 3D shapes. Use a venn diagram (as above) to sort shapes into 2D and 3D. You could use the worksheet and draw/ label the shapes or you could create this practically with objects/ shapes around the house. We would have done this practically within class using hoops to create our venn diagram! 

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
