Challenge 2 - Symmetry Challenge!
This week we will be learning about SYMMETRY.
Let's see what Mrs Creedon is up to today...
Grown Ups - This challenge is a 'hands on exploratory' challenge. It is intended to run over the course of the week and be completed both indoors, outdoors and interactively!
It is not a one hit wonder - the children will need to explore symmetry in a
variety of contexts to truly understand it. In Reception we are looking for the understanding that "Symmetry is when it is the same on both sides..."
At the beginning it might be useful to give your child the line of symmetry to work from - this could be a stick, a line of string, a strip of narrow paper Etc.
Can you create a SYMMETRICAL face
or character using bits and bobs from around your house?
Remember it needs to be SYMMETRICAL...
That is it needs to be the same
on both sides!
Have a look at the ideas below...
How about a symmetrical butterfly?
What about symmetry using
lego or duplo?
Or a symmetrical picture using
We can't wait to see your
Ask your grown up to email them to
Mrs Creedon or Miss Cook.
We can share them with your friends
when we return to school next Tuesday!
Now that you have practised making symmetrical things, why not play
the games below...
NUTS has noticed that we have been starting to talk about 'tens' and 'ones'.
For example the number 18 is made up of
'1 ten and 8 ones'.
He has found this game to help you work on this skill even more...
(Grown Ups - this is a very new skill and is an introduction of Place Value.
The word 'ones' will be replaced with 'units' once the children become more
confident into splitting numbers into 'tens' and 'ones'.
This game can be set onto different levels - please start on numbers
1 to 19 and then increase if your child is making good progress.)
NUTS has noticed that lots of you like to play these games on the tablets at school.
Why not keep your skills fresh this week?
Spread the Happiness...
