A fun song about the properties of 3D shapes such as cubes, cuboids, spheres, cylinders and cones.

First broadcast:
10 September 2007

Use this song as a stimulus to encourage the pupils to think of any other everyday items which are also a specific shape. With a variety of objects that have been brought in or with shapes the children can create using apparatus, the song can be used as a discussion point for properties of 3D shapes. You can play the 'What shape am I?' game, where the children describe the shape, using some vocabulary from the clip eg corners, face, edge and their partner has to guess what the 3D shape is.
