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.
