We are now going to start a new area of maths called Geometry. Geometry is the study of 2D and 3D shapes. Your Year 1 knowledge will help you and is built upon in Year 2 but sometimes we forget the names of shapes and how to describe them so today is a recap and reminder of your Year 1 work. Below there is a poster showing many 2D and 3D shapes. Take a look, which ones do you know?
Watch the video below to start and there is a matching worksheet. There is also an additional task to complete if you would like to.
If you would like an additional task today for your maths, then I would like you to be a shape detective. Often it is harder to spot 3D shapes when they are in different real life objects but what can you find around your home or garden? Create a poster, take photographs or complete your findings as you like. There are some ideas below.
Today we are going to carry on finding out about life on a small island and comparing places. Today I would like you to watch the short video where you will meet two girls who both live on small islands which are very different. Copy and complete the table below comparing the two different places.
