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!)
