Shapes

Today the children were looking at shapes the first activity was to identify the missing shapes in the picture.  See the link below.

Then the children made shapes with lolly sticks.  We looked closely at the number of sides each shape had to help us get the right amount of sticks.

   
    
    
    
    
    
    
 
We then made human shapes!! The children became the sides of the shapes, so again we looked at the number of sides to help us know how many children we needed.

   
    
 
Jacob wanted to then make a hexagon!! He even knew that it had six sides!

   
 
I then challenged them to make a circle which they did brilliantly, they knew they needed to bend their bodies because we describe the side of a circle as curved.
