Exploring Shape

Read the story  - The Three Little Pigs

Talk with your grown up what the pigs made their houses from. Have a look at your house - If you are able to go outside and have a look at the front of your house - count the windows and doors.

What is your house made out of?

What shapes can you see?

How is it different from the house the Three Little Pigs built?

Can you draw / make your house. We are going to make our houses out of a card board box in school - do you have a box at home that you could use?

Send in a picture - I would love to see it.
