Curriculum this half term

This half term Blue & Green room will be focusing on shape recognition. We will be going on walks around the building and the playground pointing out everyday shapes in the environment. This is something you too can do at home, when out on a walk or in the house. Alongside the shape art activities will be shapes in the tuff spot, shape stories and weighing scales to put their shapes in.
