Shape in 3/4W

For the past couple of weeks, 3/4W have been learning about shape. We have learnt that:

  • Polyhedrons are 3D shapes that have flat faces and can stand up.
  • Pyramids have an apex and triangular faces that meet at a point. They can stand.
  • Spheres have no faces but they have a curved surface.
  • Equilateral triangles are triangles with all the same size angles.
  • Squares are a special type of rectangle because they have 4 right angles, like a rectangle. But rectangles are NOT squares.

 

 

 

We also entered the Victorian Coding Challenge by producing some shapes using Scratch. Have a look at some of the things we made!

What other things do you know about 2D or 3D shapes?

    • Dear Max,
      What did you learn about edges, sides and surfaces? What shapes have a surface instead of a face?
      From Ms Wong

  1. Dear 3/4W and visitors, to our amazing blog

    We know that acute angles are less than 90 degrees,right angles are 90 degrees,obtuse angle are more than 90 degrees and less than 180 degrees and a straight line is 180 degrees.

    I love shape because I love working out the questions.- Sarah

    I love shape because I loved the activities that we do in shape.- Lucas

  3. Dear 3/4w,
    I have learnt a lot of new things about shape like on 3D shapes you would say edges, vertices and I learnt the word polyhedron. From Sowmya

    • Dear Ms Wong,

      Shapes any shape that are like rectangles, parallelograms and rhombuses are quadrilaterals.
