Below is a selection of shape and space activities from our Early Years Foundation Stage collection, which are suitable for parents and children to explore at home together. We hope you enjoy being mathematical as a family!
In this activity, children will develop an awareness of the faces of 3D shapes by using them to make 'footprints' in soft dough.
This activity involves sorting toys into categories by using comparing and classifying skills.
When investigating these tubes, children will have the opportunity to practise using everyday language to talk about length, size and position.
This activity provides an engaging context for children to consider the space they will allocate for some 'small world' toys, and how many toys they will be able to fit into the space.
Children explore characteristics of shapes and use both everyday and mathematical language to describe them, talk about positions and solve problems
