All Creatures Great and Small

This term we are learning about 'All Creatures Great and Small', from farm animals to jungle animals, underwater animals and tiny minibeasts, we want to find out everything we can. This week our focus text is 'A Squash and a Squeeze' by Julia Donaldson.
Afia summarises the story "the little old lady house is a squash and a squeeze, and the wise old man says take in your hen and goat and pig and cow, but she's not happy then. The wise old man says "take them all out" and then she is happy".

1. "I found a cube, its a bead, it got squares all on it".
2. "This chalk is a cylinder, it has 2 circles at the end".
3. "I found a Pyramid".
4. "I found a sphere, it's gigantic like a ball".

Can you find any 3D shapes around you?
