3D shape treasure hunt

The children enjoyed searching for 3D shapes in our outdoor learning environment. They  matched  them to familiar everyday shapes and discussed their properties with their friends. They used their knowledge of 2D shapes to name the faces and counted sides, corners and straight edges. Good job Monkeys!

We travelled through the swishy swashy grass, across the deep river, through the squelchy mud and the prickly forest.
