              Properties of 3D Shapes

              Students learn how to distinguish between the properties of 3D shapes using the correct vocabulary to describe their unique geometrical properties.  As learning progresses they are challenged to visualise and describe solids from nets.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to recognise the vertices, faces and edges properties of 3D shapes in the form of a solid.
              • Most students should be able to recognise the vertices, faces and edge properties of 3D shapes in the form of a net.
              • Some students should be able to visualise the properties of complex 3D shapes.

              Angles in Polygons

              There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]

Knowing my team have all the information and resources they need to teach their students gives me confidence we will start the term in the best possible way.  Mathematics Teaching and Learning Folder All teachers receive a folder […]

              Mathematics OFSTED Inspection – The Deep Dive

              Earlier this week, my school took part in a trial OFSTED inspection as part of getting ready for the new inspection framework in September 2019. This involved three Lead Inspectors visiting our school over the course of two days. The first day involved a ‘deep dive’ by each of the Lead Inspectors into Mathematics, English […]
