3D shapes

We have been learning all about 3-D shape in Maths. We can recognise a cube, cuboid, cylinder and sphere in the environment. We can count the faces, corners and edges on the shapes that have them and we know that spheres and cylinders can roll easily, but a cube and cuboid cannot roll.We know that all the faces on a cube have to be squares. We also played a shape game where someone had to put their hand into a bag of various 3-D shapes and pick one  and feel it (without seeing it) and then they had to describe its properties to the rest of the class. Whoever guessed correctly got to come up and take the next turn. We love playing this game.We also learned a shape song to help us remember what each 3-d shape looks like.
