Shapes, shapes and more shapes

Standard

Thursday 22nd September

Continuing our shape theme we started the day by sticking various coloured cellophane shapes on to paper. The children could see how the colours mixed together when they overlapped. We also used the new turkey baster to suck up coloured water and transfer to another pot, an activity that also helps to develop our fine motor skills. We made a den in the book corner and children took it in turns to ‘read’ each other a story. Outside we used the hula hoops and the shapes. We played a game we shouted out a shape name and the children had to run to that shape.

A next step from naming the shape is to think about how many corners and sides a shape has.
