Week Beginning 17.09.18

This week we have been using natural materials to build 2D shapes. We have been learning to use mathematical language to describe the shapes. We worked out how many sides and corners each shape has.

How to help at home

Can you spot 2D shapes in your environment?

Go on a shape hunt.

Count the number of sides/corners on the shapes that you find.

Week Beginning 10.09.18

This week we have been developing our gross motor skills and counting by practising hopping. We have taken it in turns to choose a number card and then hopped the correct amount.

We have been using our outdoor area to help develop our understanding of pattern. Natural materials such as pine cones, acorns and orange slices have helped us to create two step patterns such as pine cone, acorn, pine cone, acorn.

How can I support at home?

Can you count the correct number of hops/ jumps/ claps/ stomps?

Make a pattern using household objects e.g. spoon, cup, spoon, cup. Can you say what would come next in the pattern?
