Shapes in the Town

This is an easy activity to do while out walking

While out walking, or on the way to school, see how any different 3D shapes you can spot.

Look for:




Many of the shapes will not be 'true mathematical' shapes, but this is fine - just talk about the type of shapes you can see.

What shapes can your child see the most of?


You could also look for 3D shapes with your child when you sort through the recycling.

Share  what you have done with your teacher - write about what you found out, take pictures or post a tweet to your School.
