We have all been working so hard in Year 2.  We have been learning all about 2D shapes and symmetry.  We have been naming shapes and counting the number of sides and vertices.  Vertices are where 2 sides meet.  We have also been finding lines of symmetry in these shapes and improving our scissor skills too!  Ask your child about which shapes they have been learning.  They might be  able to say: circle, square, rectangle, triangle, pentagon, hexagon, heptagon and octagon!
