Maths - 2D Shape

We are learning about 2D shapes at the moment. As well as identifying a square, circle, rectangle and triangle we also learned how to count the number of sides and corners each shape has. We saw that a circle has no corners at all. Then we made some lovely shape pictures using squares, circles, rectangles and triangles. Lastly, we played a shape game. Teacher put a lot of assorted shapes into a feely bag. One person came up and had to pick a shape from inside the bag but they couldn't look at it or show it to the rest of the class. They had to describe the shape in their hands by feeling it ie. my shape has 3 corners and three sides, what shape am I? Whoever guessed correctly came up next. We are getting really good at this game now.
