3-D shapes

This week in math, year 1 have been looking at 3-D shapes.

We have looked at lots of shapes including spheres, cubes, pyramids, cuboids, cones and cylinder. We looked carefully at these shapes and got to hold them to look more closely.

We did a 3-D shape hunt around the classroom and found lots of the 3-D shapes in the things we use.

The glue sticks are the shape of a cylinder, rubbers are the shape of a cuboid and our pencil boxes are the shape of a cube as well at lots more.

We have really enjoyed finding 3-D shapes around the classroom. Some children went home and found more around their home. They found that boxes of cereal are a cuboid and oranges are a sphere.

Well done year 1!
