Thank for a great session today. There were so many people, it was great to see! So thank you for your patience with the songs, etc.
We talked about 2D flat shapes, 3D solid shapes, and patterns.
Through play and everyday activities, talking about these things, describing shapes, their properties (e.g. whether they are flat, roll, have corners, etc), helps your child develop maths and early science, technology and engineering skills!
Here are this week’s handouts, and some ideas for things to do at home:
