We have been exploring shapes a lot during our dough making this term.  Today while we were rolling out dough to make our ‘Queen of Hearts tarts’ one of the children said, “I have made the shape of Australia.”  And he had!


We have followed that up this week with a look at some shapes of other continents of the world.  We looked at Africa and North and South America.  We know a lot about the animals of Africa but very little about the other continents.  We also talked about Australia being the largest island and the smallest continent.
