Today we are going to look at the nets of 3D shapes.


The net of a 3D shape is what it looks like if it is opened out flat. A net can be folded up to make a 3D shape. There may be several possible nets for one 3D shape. You can draw a net on paper, then fold it into the shape.


Thinking about what we looked at yesterday knowing the faces of a 3D shape can help us identify the shape by using the net 


Watch the video on nets on the following link. Then make you way through the questions and quizzes at the bottom of the page.

Have a look at the following nets. See if you can work out what shape would be made if we folded the edges.



Now go onto Purple mash and complete the 2do that has been set.
