This week we are moving on to learning all about shape. Shapes are amazing because everywhere you look you see shapes. Have a look around you wherever you are sitting now. What can you see? I can see my tea mug which is a cylinder, the screen of my laptop is a rectangle, I can see a cardboard box which is a cuboid, my TV screen which is a rectangle. I could go on because they really are everywhere! Today we are thinking about recognising and comparing 2D and 3D shapes. Remember 2D shapes are completely flat (like a piece of paper) and 3D shapes stick out (like my cardboard box). Watch the video below.

Year 1:


Using the 2D shape and 3D shape word mats below, do a shape hunt around your house and garden to find examples of these shapes. Do some sorting of the shapes you find. Write a label or make a video to explain how you have sorted them. For example:


  • Have you sorted them into 2D and 3D shapes?
  • Have you sorted them by colour?
  • Have you sorted them by whether their sides/edges are straight or curved?
  • You might have sorted them another way, let me know!

Year 2:


Your worksheet for today can be found below.


Let's start today by revising the sounds we have already learnt. Click on the Power Point below and say each sound clearly. Are there any you are unsure of? Make a note of these and you can practise them on Friday.
