Today in the garden the children have been developing their knowledge of 2D shapes. We were discussing the number of sides and corners each shape has. We were focussing on squares, rectangles, triangles and circles. The children then made the shapes out of stones and correctly counted the number of sides for each shape.
Some of the children were playing with elastic bands which is very good for developing their fine motor skills and great fun too! They realised they could make different shapes using the bands!
”I made a triangle with 3 sides!”
”Look, a rectangle!”
”I made a house shape!”
We are super at making shapes at Cart Mill!
