Base 1 Maths

Today in Maths, Base 1 have been looking at the properties of 3D shapes.

They have been working together in groups to describe the properties of a 3D shape and will also learn how to identify parallel and perpendicular faces/edges.

Some 3D shapes, like cubes and pyramids, can be opened or unfolded along their edges to create a flat shape.  The net of a 3D shape is what it looks like if it is opened out flat.  A net can be folded to make a 3D shape.

The children will be learning more about this later on today.
