Maths KS1: Titch and Ted Do Maths: Geometry
Titch and Ted learn about geometry on their day out at the beach.
Titch and Ted have had a lovely day at the beach, solving problems with 2D and 3D shapes and using the vocabulary of directions, recapping all the learning in episodes one to five, covering the topics of 2D and 3D shapes, position and movement, angles, coordinates and maps.
Titch teaches Ted about the sides of 2D shapes so they can tidy up Mr Pie's sweet stall. Together, they sort squares, triangles, circles and 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.
Titch and Ted decide to make sandcastles, Ted makes a cube-shaped sandcastle and Titch explains how many faces it has. Then Ted counts the edges of the cube. Next, they count the faces of a pyramid-shaped sandcastle.
Ted must learn about symmetry and the properties of a rectangle when he is sent on a mission to buy a lolly for Miss Dotty.
Suitable for: Teaching KS1 Maths, focusing on geometry including 2D and 3D shapes, position and movement, angles, coordinates and maps.
