Age-scaleable 2D and 3D problem-solving and Maths language development using first small then large-scale materials. Make a shape smaller than a small person then make a shape bigger than lots of big people, and climb inside.

Two reception classes and their teachers worked with a filmmaker and an artist to provide children with the chance to develop clear notions of key shapes for themselves.
