The Nursery were learning about 2D shapes. They had focussed on a different shape each day in their key worker groups and looked at non- fiction books about shapes. The children used sticks to make squares, triangles and rectangles. During mathematical snack time they talked about the different shapes they could see on the table.
They could choose either a circle biscuit or a square biscuit.
They learnt a new song about shapes.
The children looked carefully for circles, squares, rectangles and triangles.
They used the large shape construction to build a rocket.
The children discovered that they could balance shapes on top of each other.
