# Maths Week Shape Hunt

We went on a maths shape hunt in our school grounds. It was very exciting.

Do you know, there are maths shapes hiding everywhere?

We went looking for squares, rectangles, circles, semi-circles, ovals and triangles. We even found hexagons and a star.

Which, do you think, is the most common shape in our environment?

We found cylinders, cuboids and even spheres.

There are shapes in nature but there aren’t any straight lines.

Tom and Lucas found some great value in these shapes!

Can you name the shapes? Can you name the lines?

We found 3 shapes in this one.

Hanifa found these lines. They are all going in the same direction. What are they called? We have a lot of them around the school.

Can you spot them?

On our hunt, Finn spotted cars of different colours – red, silver, black.

Can you count them on your way up the avenue in the morning?

Charlie found numbers on the cars. We played “find the number” game. You have to search quickly!

Charlie found lots of rectangles.

Lucas calculated how many chairs are in each pile. Then he calculated how many chairs there were altogether. If you pass these chairs, what would be a quick way to find out?

Even in our school kitchen, we spotted cuboids, cylinders, circles, and parallel lines.

Fionnuala noticed that the bottle was in the shape of a cylinder.

Finn took photographs of the bikes and scooters. Some have 3 wheels.

Can you count in threes?

Tom noticed that the tree trunk is in the shape of a cylinder.

We had a great time on our shape hunt. We hope you enjoyed looking at our photos. Make sure to keep looking for shapes and lines when you are out and about. Maybe you could have your own shape hunt at home!
