The preschool children at home and in school have been learning about 2D shapes including circles, rectangles, squares and triangles. The first challenge was for the children to go on a shape hunt around their home and outside. They did a brilliant job finding shapes everywhere. The children in preschool did the same and also found those 4 shapes everywhere too!
The next thing we all did, was to use different shapes to create pictures. The top of pots and cups are a circle shape and brilliant to print with!
We also used the four shapes to create our own houses. The children thought about which shape would be the main part of the house and then added windows, doors and even a chimney!
We are enjoying learning all about 2D shapes and we have even spotted shapes that we haven’t been learning about! So the next time you are out and about look carefully for shapes because they really are EVERYWHERE!
