The children in 5SH Maths have been asked to open a Theme Park. Each week they’re going to do new tasks to get it ready for opening. This week was their seventh week so they needed to start thinking about an adventure playground for all the children. They started by thinking about suitable 3D shapes (and their properties) when they were building the structures, as well as angles for things like slides. During their explanations they were challenged to discuss the properties of 3D shapes including vocabulary such as parallel, perpendicular and make reference to their work on angles.
