Today we looked at 3d shapes. We made sure we could name the shapes accurately and describe their properties. We used the key words: edges, faces and corners.
We then made models using our shapes and described each part of our model using the shape names.
We thought about real life objects that look like 3d shapes. Here are our ideas:
Sphere – ball, Earth, moon, football
Cone – ice cream cone, traffic cone, megaphone
Cube – cupboard, washing machine, box, dice
Cuboid – block of flats, fridge freezer, interactive whiteboard
