Home Link – Shapes

Friday 09 March 2018

As part of the Maths EYFS curriculum, children need to be able to talk about the shapes of everyday objects. They’re encouraged to play with shapes and to spot familiar shapes in their environment. As they become more confident, they may begin to name 2D and 3D shapes and be able to talk about their properties (e.g. number of sides/corners, straight/curved).

This week, we’d like you to talk all about shapes. Here are some ideas of activities that you might like to do together.

You can watch Mr Maker’s shape video and a song all about shapes.

You may have lots of other ideas too! Please make notes of the vocabulary that your child uses to talk about and describe the shapes that you find and let us know. It’s really useful information that helps us to plan next steps for your child’s learning.
