Maths KS1: Titch and Ted Do Cubes and Pyramids (pt 3/6)
Titch and her uncle Ted are at the beach. They need to understand the properties of 2D shapes in order to tidy up Mr Pie’s sweet stall.
Titch teaches Ted about the sides of 2D shapes. Together they sort squares, triangles and circles. With a little help from Miss Dotty, they also discover ovals.
Ted is getting more and more worried about not being able to teach Titch geometry but Miss Dotty has a ditty to make him feel better.
When he returns to the stall, he finds that Titch has constructed a pyramid.
This clip is from the series Titch and Ted Do Maths.
Contains some scenes which could be imitated by younger viewers. Teacher review recommended prior to use in class.
Children might sort sweets, or pictures of sweets, into jars, depending on their shape. Teachers could include shapes of different sizes.
If working with pictures, teachers might present the shapes in different orientations and ask the children what they notice.
Suitable for teaching KS1 Maths, particularly shape/2D and 3D shapes.
