Here are a few ideas you could do at home...
- Go on a shape hunt around your home and see what shapes you can find? Can you tell your grown up what shapes you have found and how many sides the shapes have?
- When out on a walk, have a look around and see how many shapes you can find? Can you make a tally mark of how many? or draw the shapes.
- Play the shape game what's in the bag? Have some cut out cardboard shapes inside the bag for your child to feel. .
