Shape play in Nursery

Nov 15, 2021Early Years, Maths

Children have been developing their mathematical skills focusing on shape through play. We used the magnetic tiles and wooden blocks to build a variety of objects and the children adapted their ideas as they played. We used a variety of mathematical language such as large, medium and small as well as naming common shapes such as square, triangle, rectangle, cube and hexagon! As part of our interest in shapes we have also identified them in the environment; both indoors and outdoors!
