# RRed Home Learning 19.5.20 Basic Skills

Good morning Reception Red. First we are going to Wake up and Shake up with Sportacus and Stephanie.

Today we are going to look at Symmetry. When something is symmetrical it means that it is the same on both sides. Look at the pictures and talk about why they are symmetrical with your grown up. Think about the different shapes that have been used.

Now look at these symmetrical pictures using objects that you might find around your home.

Your challenge is to create a symmetrical picture or pattern using objects from around your house or your garden. You could use Lego bricks or building blocks, or even leaves and twigs from your garden. Remember that whatever you make needs to be the same on both sides.
