EYFS Exploring 2D Shapes Learning Activity

EYFS Using Time Language Learning Activity

Mathematics: EYFS Exploring 2D Shapes Learning Activity

This learning activity enables children to develop their understanding of 2D shapes and their properties. Children are encouraged to go on a shape hunt around the learning environment (indoors or outdoors) looking for shapes. Children will draw the shape they have found, identify the shape and their properties. Children can cut out the shapes on page 6 to support their shape hunt. They can place the cut-out shapes on top of objects they find around the learning environment.

Early Learning Goal

(ELG12) Children use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects to solve problems. They recognise, create and describe patterns. They explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.

Development Matters Statement Links
(M-S8) Beginning to use mathematical names for ‘solid’ 3D shapes and ‘flat’ 2D shapes, and mathematical terms to describe shapes.
(M-S9) Selects a particular named shape.
