Maths Challenge 6
This week's maths challenge is actually a choice of two challenges that encourage children to talk about shapes. We have included a support sheet in case you need a reminder of the terms we use in school.

Look at the front of your home, what shapes can you see on the windows, doors, bricks or gates?

Can you see any rectangles or circles?
 Are all the rectangles the same? What is different about them?

What do you notice about the corners on the triangles?

What is special about a square?
