Year 4 were challenged to make and name 2D shapes out of spaghetti and marshmallows. They then used a venn diagram (and a long discussion) to sort the shapes according to their properties.
As a class we have decided that marshmallows and spaghetti are not good materials for model making! They are very sticky, break easily and don't hold their shape as the marshmallows melt.
