Shape & Space

The children will be learning about six 2D shapes:


Square      Circle      Triangle      Rectangle      Pentagon      Hexagon


They will also look at five 3D shapes:


Cube       Cuboid         Cone         Cylinder       Sphere


They will explore whether each shape can slide, stack and/ or roll.

The children will also look at the properties of shapes including sides, edges and vertices.

3D Shapes


Year 3 have been learning to name and recognise the properties of 3D shapes using language like faces, edges and vertices. At the end of our 3D shape work, each child made their very own 3D shape and labelled it.
