Church of England Primary School

Small school, big hearts. Wise, Responsible and Kind like the Good Samaritan.

Little Acorns- For Maths today we are going to be naming and drawing shapes.

 

You might like to draw them carefully:

  • With your finger in cooking flour on a table

  • With a stick in mud

  • With chalks on the ground

  • In paint with a brush

  • You could even make a shape road and follow the shape with a toy car (see attached below). 

 

 

While you are drawing the shapes think about:

 

  • Are the lines of  the shape curved or straight?

  • How many lines do you need to draw to make the shape?

  • What do the shapes make you think of? 

  • Are any of the shapes similar/ different?

  • If you turn the shape upside down or on its side is it still the same shape? 

Big Acorns- For Maths today we are going to remind ourselves of 3D shapes (fat) shapes.

 

First share the poem below to remind yourself of some of the shape names.

Then go on a 3D shape hunt around your house and garden. 

 

  • Can you find the shapes from the shape mat or pictures below?

  • Tell an adult about the shapes you find. 

  • Are any of the shapes similar/ different?

  • Which shapes can you roll or stack?  

 

At the very bottom of the page is also a 3D shape bingo game if you would like to play with your family.
