Road Signs and shapes.

This week we have been learning all about 2D shapes. We can see and find shapes all around us.

Did you know that different shaped road signs tell us different things?

Circular signs give us orders! An order something we must all do!

Triangular signs give us a warning! A warning is something to be careful of or watch out for.

Rectangular signs give us information. Information is telling us something!

 Octagon shapes are that shape so that they really stand out. Octagon means STOP! You would be in danger if you did not stop.

Some of these signs use pictures to tell us something, some use words, some of them use both words and pictures.

Next time you are outside look for road signs. Remember your ‘shape facts’ and see if you can identify the shape of the sign. Send us a picture or draw a picture of a sign you find.

Question of the day Look at the signs above. Can you tell us which signs use words, pictures or both?




Pattern Challenge.

In nursery we have been busy creating our own patterns.

Here are some examples of the patterns we have been making.

Can you see the repeating patterns?

My favourite is the bottle tops pattern. It goes blue, blue, blue, green, green. Blue, blue, blue, green, green.

Do you have a favourite? Can you say what you see?

Look at this pattern using black and white buttons.

Can you tell me what comes after the white button?

Look at this sparkly one using precious jewels.


Can you work out what comes after the round jewel?

Look at this beautiful pattern using more jewels.

Can you work out what comes next in this pattern?

This one is a little bit trickier than the others.

Create your very own pattern at home.

There are lots of different ways you could do this.

You could draw a pattern, use blocks, buttons or lego.

We can’t wait to see your amazing patterns.
