Exploring 2D representations of 3D shapes

  • Year group: Year 5
  • Term: Summer
  • Topic: Geometry
  • Duration: 1.5 weeks
  • Keystage: KS2
  • Age Range: 9 to 10 yrs
  • Unit can be taught out of sequence: Y
  • Week Range: 6b - 7

In this chapter, pupils identify 3D shapes from 2D representations.

Pupils identify 3D shapes, including cubes and cuboids, from 2D representations. They experience many practical, real-life examples of the use of this, as well as across the curriculum (eg, in art and design).

2D representation of 3D shapes

Mathematical discussion is a key element of the Mathematics Mastery programme.

Talk Tasks are a brilliant way of enabling pupils to develop their mathematical language, thinking, understanding and confidence.

This activity explores the concept of 2D representation of 3D shapes.

• Talk tasks are best completed in mixed attainment pairs, with pupils taking turns to listen and construct arguments
• Emphasis is on discussion rather than the solution, encouraging pupils to use key language and talk in full sentences
• Ask pupils to prove their answers in a variety of ways, using the CPA approach to support mathematical understanding and number sense

Like what you see? Mathematics Mastery is a professional development programme for teachers with a mission to transform mathematics education in the UK.

This task is just a taster of the complete classroom resources we offer. We also provide in-depth development training, online CPD, specialist support and assessment tools.

We believe all elements of our programme are vital in creating lasting change – enabling every child to enjoy and succeed in mathematics.

Matching Nets

To be used with 3D shapes to match shapes to their nets
By Kath Sewell

Nets of 3d shapes

This is a worksheet/investigation/activity that can be used to decipher the nets of 3d shapes. I'm sorry but the extension won&'t come out on this document, but all you need to do is draw spots on the nets and draw corresponding spots on the correct side of the cube. The base square also needs colouring.
