The Gallery – Shape Street, Tessellation Town

The challenge set by Sticky Fingers for The Gallery this week is to find shapes all around us and snap them up.  As soon as I read the brief I knew the photos that I wanted to share.  They are from 2005 and my final teaching practice in Cumbria.  I was working with a mixed Reception, Year 1/2 class for 6 weeks.  It was wonderful.  I learned so much and it gave the foundations of my own classroom that I had in the September of the same year.  These picture show the celebration of a 2 week topic on Shape and Space in Numeracy.  We had explored 2D, 3D, tessellation, pattern and symmetry.  We brought all our new knowledge and understanding together to create a whole class display.

Ladies and Gentleman, I give you – Shape Street in Tessellation Town, in The Land of Polygon.  (I wish I had taken more photos of it now!)
