Morning all,

For the rest of this week we are going to focus upon shapes. The children have had lessons on 2D and 3D shapes so this should be a recap for them :)

Today we will look at 2D shapes.
Take a look at the shapes below. Can you remember what they are called? How many sides do they have? How many corners do they have?

 



 

Answers:

Circle: 1 side, 0 corners
Triangle: 3 sides, 3 corners
Square: 4 equal sides, 4 corners
Rectangle: 4 sides (2 long, 2 short), 4 corners
Pentagon: 5 sides, 5 corners
Hexagon: 6 sides, 6 corners
Triangle: 3 sides, 3 corners
Rectangle: 4 sides (2 long, 2 short), 4 corners



Your challenge today is to make these shapes. You can do it any way that you choose. It might be that you draw them, maybe you can use duplo or lego (which shape might be super tricky to do with straight bricks?), maybe you want to use natural materials such as stones to create them outside or maybe you could get something to represent corners and sides and build the shapes. For example getting marshmallows and cocktail sticks or stones and sticks and then creating each shape.

Have fun and send me pictures of what you get up to on tapestry!
