Get children to copy photos which I took using shapes I have in my class. I'm thinking about using idea with real objects, construction etc. Iwanted children to copy pictures made from 2d shapes but needed them to look exactly the same so I just made my own. I'm then going to have a camera available and ask the children to make their own pictures and take a photo and I will then print those for the children to copy. This will add a technology strand and make a nice display.

More ideas
EYFS shape sorting table, maths, playing with and arranging shape, naming shapes, discussing shape features.

Could maybe use magic whiteboard paper and redraw with whiteboard pens so students don't memorise where each shape goes.

Mirror play is a great way to introduce symmetry, shapes and more.

"Getting to grips with shapes! This activity can also be great for mark making. Best outdoors this one, tiz a bit messy but easily cleaned. This is shaving foam! Squirt and spread across your surface. We then used our plastic shapes as templates and with our fingers drew around the outside, lifted up and had created our shapes which we then talked about. Great for shape classification!"

Cover the surface with shaving foam. Then use plastic shapes as templates and with fingers draw around the shapes.
