We have recently been learning about shape in our maths lessons.

The world around us is made up of space and shape and these are very important concepts for students to understand.

We used Jenny Eather’s Maths Dictionary for Kids a lot to learn and revise vocabulary such as:

  • 3D shape
  • 2D shape
  • prism
  • pyramid
  • vertices
  • edge
  • face

We have enjoyed drawing and labelling shapes, making 3D shapes with nets, counting edges, faces and vertices and playing a range of games to learn about shapes.

If you would like to try some more activities about shape, you can find a collection of games on the Woodlands site here.
