Building Polydron

Last week, we finished our maths block on shape. One of the lessons was based around the objective of recognising 3D shapes from their nets and different representations. Part of this learning involved taking the 2D shapes (in polydron form) and building their own 3D shape. Each group then used the shape to describe it’s properties. For example, those who built a cuboid were able to describe it had 6 faces: 2 square and 4 rectangles. I’d even say that some of the children didn’t even know they were doing learning!
