Maize class: Shapes.
Maize class have been learning all about squares, circles and triangles.
We have been making these shapes using rubber bands and peg boards, we have been tracing shapes, sorting shapes and finding shapes in the world around us.
Maize class: The threeness of three.
We have been working on the number 3, we have been counting, writing and making 3 using lots of fun activities.
We spoke about corners of shapes and what a corner is and then we identified all the shapes with 3 corners. Some of us recognised that not all shapes with 3 corners look the same, and some triangles have ‘different size’ sides.
We have been working on our number formation using the poem ‘Around the tree, around the tree, now you’ve made a number 3’.
We have also been making groups of 3 and exploring different ways to make 3.
