We have been having lots of fun learning about shapes in nursery.
We have been sorting things by their shape and their colour, we have been learning the names of different shapes and learning to describe them with words like straight and round, we have been going on shape hunts in the classroom and outside.
We have also been making pictures with shapes and doing shape puzzles…
How can you continue learning at home?
Go on a shape hunt yourself – you could go for a walk or you could look at the shapes of packaging in your kitchen
Make a model, use different boxes and containers to make a model and talk about the shapes you use
Build with blocks and describe the shapes as you use them – is it a round shape or a straight shape? Is it flat or pointy?
Sort and match objects as you tidy up – find all the things that are the same shape to go in the drawer together.
