Shapes! We have been focusing on 2D and 3D shapes in maths this month, with a particular focus on understanding how 2D shapes come together to form 3D prisms. We’ve also been building up the vocabulary needed, such as ‘apex’, ‘vertices’, ‘faces’, ‘edges’ and ‘prisms’. Activities range from online challenges, such as using Scratch to program 2D drawings, including using directions and angles, to hands-on challenges, such as creating the nets for 3D prisms from cardboard and investigating the different options for these nets in terms of layout.
Here are a selection of images from the unit of work so far!
The Preps have been at school for 13 days today, time flies when you’re having fun!
Last year we had a wonderful team of helpers who organised the borrowing and returning of books for students in our area. The helpers also kept the library tidy and if there was time assisted in the covering of new books.
We have library borrowing each day so that students can change their book any day. The helpers came in the last hour but usually the last half hour of the day is sufficient time to do the borrowing.
It is anticipated that we will be ready to start library borrowing next week, Week 3.
If you are interested in helping out on a particular afternoon, please email me with your availability at firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to hearing from you.
