3D Shapes

This week our Swans have being learning all about 3D shapes. We learned the names of some of them: cube, cuboid, sphere, cone and square base pyramid. The childrenĀ  were able to choose the correct shape from a variety of shapes when asked. They also recognised the difference between a 2D shape (being flat)and 3D shapes (being solid).
We have explored the properties of 3D shapes and learned that they; have faces (flat surface), edges (where 2 faces meet) and vertices/corners (Where the edges meet).
The children worked with their talk partners to complete an activity where they matched pictures of everyday items to the correct 3D shape. They were excellent at completing this activity.
Well done Swans!
