Making Shapes

ActivitiesPosted by J Murray Fri, October 13, 2017 07:33PM
Over the past two weeks we having been learning all about 2D and 3D shapes. The pupils enjoyed investigating the properties of 3D shapes such as: number of faces, vertices and edges.

The pupils used Geo Boards to make shapes. They then had to count the number of sides and label the shape. We had fun making regular and irregular shapes.

We have been learning all about perimeter in Numeracy. As part of our Numeracy this week we worked with a partner to find the perimeter of objects outside. We all enjoyed using the different equipment to measure but particularly enjoyed using the trundle wheels.

Over the summer term we will be looking at number sequences, nets of shapes, tessellations, pie charts and revising the four operations( multiplication, division, addition and subtraction).

Mathletics tasks will be set each week so please ensure your child completes them and encourage your child to gain more points by completing additional tasks.
