Today we are going to be learning all about shapes. I wonder if you all know that a square is a type of rectangle? Click on the link below and watch session 1 video and then have a go at the worksheet below. It is really important that the children understand that a shape is still the same even it has moved upside down or spins onto it`s side.

Cut out all of these shapes and play pairs. Can you describe all of these shapes using Maths language. Don`t forget that a square is a type of rectangle with 4 equal sides.

Can you name all of these shapes? There a few new ones on here to learn.

If you would a challenge try this activity

Look at the shapes below. Name them all and then discuss which poster they would go on. Make sure your child can really explain each shape in detail e.g. how many sides and corners.
