Shapes in our Environment

Reception have been learning about 2D shapes.

In our classes, we reminded ourselves of what 2D shapes were and which 2D shapes we knew. Then, we started to look at their properties. We talked about how many sides and corners each 2D shape has. We noticed a pattern – most regular 2D shapes have the same number of corners and sides, except for circles. Do you know how many sides and corners a circle has?

After that, we went on a shape hunt around our school, identifying the different shapes we could see and commenting on their properties. We then drew the shapes we could see on the ground with chalk.

We had so much fun in our learning, have a look at our pictures to see more.
