Shapes with Mr Brown

Today we were very lucky to have Mr Brown share a numeracy lesson with us. We looked at lots of different shapes and shared our knowledge about them.

Square and rectangle

It’s a square – Joseph
A rectangle is a bit longer than a square – Max


It has three sides


It is just one line


It’s a diamond because it builds like a square and it fits like a triangle. It’s got 4 sides – Aaron
It has four corners – Ivan
It has four straight lines – Dimi
It’s a different shape than a square – Sonny
It has two sides and if you turn the square, it makes a diamond – Max


It’s a house shape – Max
Octagon – Navya
Pentagon – Aaron


Because it has 5 corners (points) – Nhial
It has 5 sides and 5 corners and a star is a shape of the dark night – Sonny
If there’s a different star, that has 10 points, then it has 10 points – Jason
It has a triangle on the bottom and the sides – Max


The arrow, will tell you to go – Oliver
It looks like a bow gets arrows, and if you pull the string, it pushes the arrow and it has a point on it. It hits the target, like bullseye – Jason
An arrow has a triangle at the front and a rectangle at the back – Navya


It has one side – Carmelo
It has two humps and it’s kind of like two circles with a triangle – Eva
