3D shapes

Hello everyone,

This week in our maths sessions, we will be looking at 3D shapes.

Some of this week will be a recap of some vocabulary you already know like faces, edges and vertices. We will also be looking at naming those shapes we already know. Look at the shapes below. Can you tell me how many faces, edges and vertices some of these have?

However after this recap, we will actually be BUILDING our own 3D shapes using modelling materials.  This is going to be a great week of hands on maths.

As always, we are really trying to learn those 8x tables.

2 x 8 = 16

3 x 8 = 24

4 x 8 = 32

  1. In maths we are leaning about our 8 times tables. We are also leaning colum multipulcation times table.

  2. i like our maths about 3D shapes i like how we are learning new things about them.iv been doing some work with my little sister on shapes ……… 4 8 12 16 20 24 28 32 36 40……3 6 9 12 15 18 21 24 37 30……..8 16 24 32 40 48 56 64 ……..2 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 18 20…..5 10 51 20 25 30 35 40 45 50…….

    1. That is great to see you working with your little sister and sharing your learning. Maybe you could go on a 3d shape hunt in your house?

  3. A cube has 12 edges , 8 vertices and 6 faces

    A cuboid has 12 edges , 8 vertices and 6 faces

    A Sphere has 0 edges , 0 vertices and 1 faces

    A cone has 1 edges 1 vertices and 2 faces

    1. Casey, it is great to see you on the blog. Thank you for your comment. Have you enjoyed our 3d shape work this week?

  4. I love are 3D shapes we got to make are own 3D shapes we have never done this before it was really fun we had a stick and some play Doh and make some shapes Like a cube that is what I did and I loved it . The end
