3D Shape Nets

Cutting and decorating our nets.

Today we made some 3D shapes from nets. Nets are the 2D shapes which make up the 3D shape. Think of it like a flattened box.

Here are some websites we can use to help us find out more:

Match the shape to the Net

This one looks like fun too!

Scott of the Antarctic

Today we started to learn about Captain Robert Falcon Scott. He was one of the early explorers to Antarctica. He led two expeditions. The first of these was on board a ship called the “Discovery” in 1901. This is of special interest to us because this ship is now docked in Dundee and we are going to visit it in two week’s time.

We are beginning to learn about writing non-fiction texts. Mrs Stewart gave us a piece of writing about Captain Scott. We had to highlight important information, then we worked together to put this into bullet points. We discussed how bullet points are a good way of summarising information. We made a poster about Captain Scott using some of our bullet points.

Mrs Stewart has a new Flip video camera. We made this wee video as a test. We think we are going to be using it a lot to share our learning with you!
