We have been learning about the Hindu festival of lights called Diwali.

We have been learning about circles.
Circles can be found all around us! Circles are a flat 2D shape. Circles are round, have a curved edge that never stops and don’t have any points. You will find a circle face on each end of a cylinder. A cylinder is a 3D shape or solid shape. Many children will call a sphere (a ball shape) a circle and it is important to tell children that yes the shape is round like a circle but it is a solid shape/3D shape that we can hold so it is called a sphere. The cone 3D shape also has a circle face.
I wonder if:
- You can find any shapes with circle faces on your way to and from school.
- You can describe a circle.
- You can find anything in your kitchen cupboards with circle shapes on.
- You can cut your fruit and vegetables into shapes that have circle faces.
