2D & 3D shapes
Pictures of buildings and transport
‘Bird’s eye view’ pictures
, metre sticks
Why did Brunel choose to use these shapes in his designs?
Which shapes connect together effectively?
Why have some shapes not been used?
Foundation – match shapes to simple line pictures. Use 2D shapes and sticky paper to create own pictures of transport and buildings. Name and label shapes.
Y1 – Draw around “D shapes to create a picture of transport. Name and label shapes. Use 3D shapes to make a model of transport and buildings.
Y2-As above. Identify properties of shape. Give groups bird’s eye view pictures of transport and buildings. Can they identify the 3D shapes? Chn draw their own bird’s eye view of transport and buildings using 2D shapes.
Measuring the length of bridges made in DT and measuring the distance the bridge spans. Compare lengths and distances. Measuring the distance between two places linked to Brunel’s railway network.
3D problem solving eg ‘How many cuboids do you need to build a model
