Shape fun in Maths!
This week we have been doing lots of work on shape in maths. Firstly, we thought about all the different properties of 2-D shapes. In pairs, we played ‘Shape Shop’:
“I would like to buy a shape but I don’t know the name of it. It has four right angles and two pairs of parallel sides. The opposite sides are equal lengths but not all the sides are the same length. Can you guess what shape I want to buy?”
Then we had to sort them using our Carroll diagrams.
Finally, we had fun translating our shapes to create patterns and motifs.
