Making 3D shapes.

Today we have been learning about new 3D shapes. Today we have all been making triangular prisms. Our end goal is to use our 3D models to make a giant Egyptian pyramid. Why don’t you have a go at making a 3D model?



2D and 3D Shapes.

In Class 3 this week we have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes. In art the children have painted pictures in the style of ‘Neo-plastic’ art. This art uses geometric shapes to create paintings, that are often abstract. Will you have a go at a ‘geometric’ picture? Take a look at our paintings!





3D Shapes.

Today in Class 3 we have been learning all about 3D shapes. We have been learning about the properties of each 3D shape, and we have been looking for these shapes in our environment. Kyle found a shape on the playground, ” This is a cylinder.”
What 3D shapes can you see when you walk around school?


Learning To Talk About 3D Shapes.

We are learning about 3D shapes and how we can use special maths words to talk about them. Can you explain what a face, edge or vertex is?
