Now that we have read Matilda the book and watched Matilda the movie, it’s time to make a decision. Which do YOU think is better?
Comment below which you think is a better version, with supporting evidence of why.
We have been learning about 3D shapes in maths this week.
We have been very busy constructing nets and using tooth picks to make skeletons of 3D shapes.
We even made some dodecahedrons, octahedrons and icosahedron!!
“What are they?” we hear you ask.
A dodechaedron is a 3D shape that has 12 faces, 20 vertices and 30 edges.
An octahedron is a 3D shape that has 8 faces, 6 vertices and 12 edges.
An icosahedron is a 3D shape that has 20 faces all shaped like triangles, 12 vertices and 30 edges.
Check out our shapes below!
And here are the nets we turned into shapes – can you see the dodecahedron?
And finally – this is our new favourite song about 3D shapes. We know all the words and beg Miss M to play it all the time.
WOW!! What a BUSY week we have had in 4M!
Last week we have been on an AMAZING excursion into the city to see a theatre and an interactive movie exhibit.
We have also made Mother’s Day cards for our BEAUTIFUL mums, we love them to pieces!
Finally, we had someone come to speak to us about dioramas to help us with our Inquiry project, which we are all SUPER excited about.
Check out some of the photos below and make a comment as to why some words are in capitals and some are not!
Look at the following image of a school playground.
Comment below with how many different 2D shapes you can see and what they are.
Add to your comment the properties of one of those shapes – how many sides, angles and parallel lines?
Challenge: How many 3D shapes can you see?
