1MS - 3D shapes investigation

This week, year 1 started to learn about 3D shapes.

Today, the children completed an investigation.

First investigation
Some children were given the task of checking which 3D shapes would roll and which 3D shapes would not roll.

Which 3D shapes do you think rolled?

Second investigation
The other children were given 2 hoops and a selection of 3D shapes. The children had to sort the 3D shapes into 2 groups. Miss Shah didn't give any clues and the children had to work together to decide what the 2 groups could be. Looking at the pictures, how do you think the children sorted the shapes? Can you think of any other ways?
