The children have been looking really carefully at the properties of 2D and 3D shapes, counting how many sides and corners the shapes have. They have challenged each other to ‘guess the shape’, with one person describing a shape and their partner thinking carefully about the name of the shape being described.
They have even made their own 3D shapes! Firstly looking at the net of the shape, naming all the 2D shapes they could see and thinking about the 3D shape it will make once it has all been joined together.
The children have enjoyed being shape detectives! Going on a hunt to find 3D shapes within everyday objects around the school. They also used large 2D shapes, creatively putting shapes together to make composite shape pictures. The children talked about all the different shapes they used within their fantastic pictures!
