It is really important that Maths is taught with breadth and that concepts are widely investigated so that they become meaningful to the children. With this in mind, Reception have had great fun learning about 3D shape! We have taken advantage of the lovely weather and have been outside on an exciting 3D shape hunt. In the outdoor learning area we have been investigating which shapes we can build a house for the 3rd little pig. We have tested shapes on ramps to investigate their properties and have also sorted all the real 3D shapes we can find within the classroom into large sets. (We put most of them back in their correct place afterwards!) We have made faces using a variety of 3D shaped fruit and have generally had great fun making links within our learning.
