Task one: Find 2D shapes in your house! How many different shapes can you find? See how many you can in your house, and be creative! For example: a cereal box is a rectangle.

Task two: Take a photo of all the different shapes you have found and sort them into categories. Such as: squares; rectangles; circles and triangles. Do they all look the same? Are some big? Are some small? Ask yourself these questions whilst doing this task!

Key skills - spring hunt

key skills - Pencil control and letter forming

Why not practice mark marking in sand, flour, rice and dabbers. Allow your child to use their fingers to feel the shapes your making before giving them a pencil or felt tip. There are lots off letters, number and shape apps on the ipad. Why don’t you hide letters (written on pieced of paper) around the home/ garden and let your child search for them (letter recognition)

2d shapes - Key skills

Go on a 2d shapes hunt in the home or garden. Can you find simple shapes (circle clock, square tv, rectangle window? Log or draw them them using the recoding sheet below. It may be nice to take pictures of them on the ipad for you to look back on. Whilst exploring, you could discuss the shapes properties (number of corners and edges). Why don’t you discuss their colours, how they feel, the noise they make and try to measure them using hands and feet?
