Year 5 Reasoning about 3D Shapes

This Year 5 Reasoning about 3D Shapes lesson covers the prior learning of recognising and describing 3D Shapes, before moving onto the main skill of identifying 3D shapes from 2D shapes and their properties.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for that step. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning by completing an engaging extension task.

National Curriculum Objective
