Find a selection of 3D shapes- cube,cuboid,sphere,cylinder.
Place them one at a time in a bag.
Ask your Pioneer to put their hand in and feel the shape and to describe what they feel.
Here are some words to try out –sharp, slopey, pointy, like a brick, arch, box.
Here is a list of mathematical shape language – corner, side, edge, flat, curved, rectangular, cylinder
Next,place a selection of shapes in the bag. Ask your Pioneer to bring out the shape with a curved surface or six flat faces or the one with rectangular faces.
This is tricky so you will need to model this.
Can your Pioneer ask the questions?
Make a collection of your toy animals. Look at my photographs.
What do you think these animals eat?
Can you say if they are a herbivore, a carnivore or an omnivore?
What do you know about the teeth of the animals in my pictures?
Could you sort the animals into groups depending on what they eat?
