Recently we have been doing a lot of playing with shapes. We have been studying their form and observing how they appear in different ways in the world around us. Olivia can confidently name the common shapes: circle, triangle, square and rectangle. She is also experimenting with the names of new shapes, like hexagon, so she can name the shapes she sees in road signs. This was one of Olivia's favourite shape activities. She chose this piece for her portfolio because: "Green means go and yellow means slow and red is stop and it's all circles in a big triangle. I drew the traffic light."
