This week Year 5 having been diving deep into 3D shapes by learning about volume. We began by building various solids, using multi-link, from given pictorial representations. The level of challenge gradually increased as not all unit cubes were visible in each image and the children had to use the information given to predict the number of unit cubes needed, before testing out their predictions by making the solid and checking whether their predictions were correct. Later in the week, we moved onto drawing cubes and cuboids on isometric paper – this was a difficult skill to grasp but the children showed great perseverance and with practise came mastery! Next week we will be learning how to calculate volume using the dimensions of a given solid.
