Right up your street



The other day I was revisiting this wonderful blog and looking at the templates for lots of different kinds of mini-books.  I had noticed the Triarama before, and this time had the idea of giving it to Year 5 French so that they could show me how well they can say what is in town and what isn't.

Above is the one that I made, and here's how I did it: 


1.  Take a piece of A4 paper and fold one of the corners down to the opposite edge.
2.  Cut off the spare strip.
3.  Unfold the resulting square of paper and fold it the other way to create a second diagonal crease.
Then cut from one corner to the centre.
4.  You can then draw your pictures and write your words to complete the Triarama.
5.  All you need to do then is to stick the blank triangle under the writing triangle to make the 3D Triarama shape.
As well as using this for places in town, you could try it for a family portrait and description, or perhaps a supermarket shelf containing containers, weights and measures of foods and drinks.  Any other ideas?  Year 5 are really enjoying making their streets.
