How many circles and triangles can you find in your house and outside? What differences do you notice between a circle and a triangle? How many sides/corners do they have? Are the sides straight/curved?

Can you draw a shape monster using only triangles and circles?

This week for homework we would like you to explore 'senses'. We have been learning how we use different senses when one of them doesn't work. 

At home we would like you to play a "blind fold" game where you take away the sense of vision. Ideas include:

- food tasting (what do they think it tastes like)

- sound making (can they follow the sound or tell you what the sound is)

-have an array of different textured objects, remove one (what is missing through touch)

These are just some ideas. We cannot wait to see what you play with your vision taken away. Please remember to upload the homework to learning book so we can share it in class. 

Thursday 22nd October
