This week year 6 have been investigating the properties of 3-D shapes. We focused on counting the faces, edges and vertices and then we tried to visualise and draw the nets of various shapes.We learnt the proper mathematical names for common 3-D shapes such as:-Square-based pyramids-Hexagonal-based pyramids-Tetrahedrons-Triangular, Hexagonal and Octagonal prisms-Spheres, hemispheres, cylindersWe also learnt about some more complex 3-D shapes such as:-Dodecahedrons- Isocahedrons-OctahedronsOn Friday we tasted some German foods as part of our topic work. We tasted two types of German sausage as well as German cheese and a special German Christmas cake called Stollen. 

An Isocahedron!
