You must ask each other questions that can only be answered with ‘yes’ or ‘no’ and use the answers to guess which 2D shape you are. The first to guess correctly wins the round. You can ask question such as ‘Do I have more than 4 sides?’



Let’s make alien space ships


Begin to think about what an alien space ship would look like, what shape would it be? What colour? Would it have doors, flashing lights, a window?

On paper design the shape of their ships first, thinking about what they have available to them, do they want a door which can come down to let the aliens out, do they want a light on it etc.

Labels could be added to their designs to share details and they may want to make a list of items they will need to go and find to be able to make it e.g. a carboard box, a toilet roll tube, tin foil, 

Send us a photograph we would love to see your spaceships. 


Outdoor challenge
