Nursery have had a call from Chase the police officer this week! Some thieves have stolen our 2D shapes! Chase asked for our help to find, match, name and describe the shapes. The children had a great try at getting dressed in the police uniform themselves then went off in search of the "pesky robbers" who had stolen the circle, triangle, square, rectangle and oval.
The children showed some super 2D shape knowledge by describing them using mathematical language such as "straight", "corner" and "sides" and other descriptive language like "round" and "pointy". They were even finding other circles, ovals and squares in the nursery to match them to. Chase was very impressed and sent the children their very own police badge!
Can you spot any 2D shapes around your home? Try describing them and remembering their names.
