Gloucester Pre-school have been looking at photos of different buildings and structures, then using the ideas they have seen to make arrangements with all types of shapes.
Investigating the shapes within the pictures, the children explored the different objects they had and tried to rebuild the structures and made their own creative buildings together too! We worked on a mirror so that the children could see the reflection of the shapes they were making, they loved looking at themselves and making funny faces in the mirror! Pre-School helped to name the shapes and experimented by putting shapes together to create bigger and smaller shapes then compared all the different sizes.
