- Here are some photos of us learning to work with a partner and building on our friendship theme. We made some paper strips and stapled them together. Our aim was to work with a partner, while being joined together with the strips to do various tasks without breaking the links! It was great fun!
We have been learning all about 2 D and 3 D shapes. Shapes are all around us! The children have been really clever in recognising different shapes that they already know such as circle, square, rectangle and triangle. They have now moved on to learn some new 3 D shape such as cube, cuboid, pyramid, cone and cylinder. In maths we have been focusing on what makes the 2 D shapes and 3 D shapes different from each other! We have been using language such as sides, straight sides, curved sides, long and short sides, faces, corners and roll. We have been counting the sides on each shape and we now know that a rectangle has 2 straight long sides and 2 straight short sides, a square has 4 straight sides of all the same length, a triangle has 3 straight sides and a circle has one curved side that goes around and around. We have also being counting the faces and corners of each 3 D shape. Check out some of the photos of us working in maths sorting 2 D from 3 D shapes
Can you figure out this is? Its made from 3 D shapes during our play rota!
Below are some educational websites with great opportunities for your child to re-enforce their learning. They may need some help at the start to navigate the webpages but they enjoy these sites and the best part is they often don't realise how much they are learning as the games are great fun!
