During our topic work about the solar system we looked at the planet shapes. This was the introduction to one of our numeracy lessons this week – The Circle.
Our Wilf robot helped us see the circle rules:
- A circle is round.
- It has no sides.
- It can roll over.
With these properties in mind the children were able to play treasure hunt in class and look for objects which are circular in shape.
They found various objects amongst them a cushion, the clock, tape, the round flashcard rules we have in class, blocks, pompoms, the play dough lids, other container lids, and buttons.
The children worked on their shapes workbook where they had to colour in the circle shape amongst other shapes.
They also sorted shapes we have done so far into their different sections.
