In North America we learnt about 3D shapes in maths. On Tuesday the Year 6s drew their own nets (not copying down) and flaps then we cut them neatly to make our own 3D shapes. Meanwhile, the Year 5 children designed their own branching databases, using properties of shape to separate and sort 2D and 3D shapes. The very next day, the Year 6 children used the branching database to try and work out what the shapes were. They were right on every occasion!
Some children investigated cubes. They had to try and form a cube by joining together 5 separate pieces. It was quite tricky. Once they had achieved this, they then investigated how many blocks were in each cube.
