Pre-school have recently been exploring shapes!
Today we focused on circles and squares. It was great fun exploring the sticky back plastic and we were able to select the circles and place them inside the big circle, and place the squares inside the big square. The children were brilliant at identifying and placing the different shapes into the right spot, some children even tried counting how many circles or squares there were! Next onto triangles and rectangles!
