Hello everyone, we hope you are all staying safe and well. The maths this week is 2D and 3D shape.


In Year 1, children will be expected to be able to identify simple flat (2D) and solid (3D) shapes and use mathematical vocabulary to describe position, direction and movement. This includes:


  • recognising and name common 2D shapes, such as circles, triangles, rectangles and squares
  • recognising and name common 3D shapes, such as spheres, pyramids, cones, cuboids and cubes


* Throughout the week collect junk modelling boxes and tubes etc ready to make a form of transport with your child on Thursday.


Keep up the good work!



Go on a shape walk around your house and garden to find 2D and 3D shapes. Can you name the shapes and talk about their properties? e.g A square has 4 sides the same.



Sing the 2D and 3D shape songs. Sort the boxes you have collected into groups. Can you put all the cuboids together? Which is a cylinder? How do you know?



Choose a shape net to print and cut out then fold it to make your own 3D shape.



Use the boxes you have collected this week to make a form of transport. Can you name all the shapes and talk about their properties?
