Identifying Shapes in Year 1

Year 1 have been busy identifying shapes during our first few maths lessons of the autumn term. The children should now be familiar with shapes such as squares, circles, triangles, rectangles and hexagons.

Small groups of children were taken out on a shape hunt around our school. We had a tick sheet to complete that involved crossing off an item each time that we saw an object that matched a shape.

Other classroom activities have included making some shapes using the geo-board and elastic bands. The children have also retrieved shapes from a sandbox and then identified them. A final table activity involved some wax rubbing using shapes.
