Birthday present maths

This week has been Miss Clouting’s birthday and she got lots of presents. We have been learning about 3D shapes this week so we decided to use some of her presents to learn about the different shapes.

We found cylinders, cubes and cuboids and identified the faces, edges and vertices.

We also use lots of maths when we made a birthday cake. We had to double and halve quantities of the ingredients because we needed to make a big cake so everyone could have a piece.

We rounded off the day with a puppet show which we had been planning as a surprise.

We had a great day and Miss Clouting said it was her best birthday ever!
