Our maths focus this week has been on 3d shapes. We have discussed what faces, edges and vertices are and have been introduced to some new shape names such as:
Square based pyramid
Part of the Year 3 maths curriculum is that children can create 3d models so today we looked at nets and they had to cut, glue and make the shapes. It was a really fun and interesting lesson and the children all challenged themselves with harder shapes.
Next week we'll be making them out of other materials...
