Monday 1st February
Exploring shapes – Squares and rectangles.
White Rose: session 1 https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/early-years/light-and-dark-week-3/
Squares and rectangles have 4 straight sides and 4 corners.
If we turn it around, is it still the same shape? Compare a square and a rectangle. What is the same and what if different?
Can you spot any other shapes with 4 straight sides?
Activities: Can you make your own picture using squares and rectangles?
Or you can use sticks/match sticks to create squares and rectangles.
Watch the video of ‘Off we go to Mexico’. What would you like to learn more about? For example:
Who built the pyramids?
When were the pyramids built?
What is a fiesta?
Activity: Discuss what you would like to learn more about. Draw a picture of yourself and then in a speech bubble write your question.
