Exploring Symmetry

Year 2 are enjoying working with Skiddaw on symmetry.  Here they are exploring symmetrical shapes with their bodies; independently and in pairs.

We continued exploring symmetrical shapes in the classroom using mirrors or folding shapes in half to ensure each half was exactly the same.  We found symmetry in a range of 2D shapes, letters and flags from around the world.


Some of us also built symmetrical models using multi-link cubes.


On Wednesday, Reception, Year One and Year Two enjoyed orienteering! For some it this was their first  experience of such an exciting activity! The afternoon had been organised by Dallam and involved the children finding their own pre-designed cookies which had been taken by the cookie dragon and hidden in the woodland! We were lucky to have lovely weather for the afternoon and the children enjoyed a beautiful hunt in the sunshine. Everybody managed to find their cookies and were rewarded with juice and a cookie at the end. Many thanks to all the parent helpers on the day for both providing transport and accompanying us on the hunt. Everyone had a great time!
