This week we are making sets and ordering them from the smallest to the biggest set. We are also making repeating patterns. We are great at making 2 colour patterns. It is a bit of a challenge when we try making 3 or 4 colour patterns. Our group work tasks this week are all about shape - lots of problem solving required!! Every day this week we are thinking about things we do during the day - morning, afternoon and evening.
Our group tasks were all challenges to do with shape.
- Missing piece game. We had to work out which colour and shape our partner covered up on the baseboard.
- Tower challenge. Using building blocks we had to build a tower without it collapsing. We had to think carefully about the shapes and the positions we put them in.
- Shapes around us. Mrs Cummings took us for a 'shape walk' around school. We chose a 2D shape and found things around us that we're the same shape.
