# Some brilliant numeracy lessons. By Zara

[slideshow]
This week in numeracy we have been learning all about 3d shapes and their properties.
On Monday we started with 2d shapes. We were sorting the shapes into Venn and Carroll diagrams. Some of us chose to work with Miss sorting the shapes into hoops and others chose to work independently and choose their own ways to sort.
Yesterday we had to describe the properties of 3d shape. Some of chose to use blu tack to cound the faces, edges and vertices on diferent shapes. Others chose to solve a puzzle where you had to match the description to the correct shape. Others decided to make their own puzzle up for a partner.

Today in numeracy we have had a fantastic time! We have been visualising 3D shapes.Aso we picked a card with a shape name and made 3D models from straws and modelling clay to show we could visualise different shapes in our minds.
Everybody had brilliant fun! We had to use great team work today too.

Tomorrow we are going to make christmas decorations that are different 3d shapes when we work in santa’s workshop!

i enjoyed it when we used the art straws and clay to make the 3d shapes they all looked reaaly good in my group ( Bismah ,mya ,zara ) we made a square based prymaid and trianglur prism we needed to make sure that all the sides were the same length. it was also fun making the boxes you needed to be patient with the glueing but it was still fun. i also enjoyed it when we had to sort the 2d shapes into a venn and carol digrams
you could sort them into:
. irreggluer and regglur
. line of symetyry or line of symettrey
