I wanted to introduce the concept of rotational symmetry to my top set in Year 4 but didn't want to go into rotating shapes across a mirror line etc.. All I wanted was to introduce them to the order of rotational symmetry but couldn't find anything which covered this so I created the attached sheet. Hope it's of some use to others. Also includes success criteria....a necessity in this format at my school!
An easy to use, free online adaptive quiz from Mangahigh.
State the order of rotational symmetry for a shape and know the order for all the common 2D shapes including regular polygons. Complete the drawing of a shape to give it a certain order of rotational symmetry. Other properties of 2D shapes need not be known.

A comprehensive lesson on rotating different objects at levels 5-6. Starter revisits previous learning. Several tasks and extension activities provided. Fully worked solutions throughout for students who really struggle with this topic. Mini-plenary and plenary activities embedded. Worksheets attached to the end of the Powerpoint.
GCSE Revision. I have made a compilation of different grade C starter questions to use with students in preparation for their linear GCSE foundation exam. All questions have fully worked answers. My borderline group have found this incredibly beneficial and has dramatically boosted their confidence. I hope the effort i’ve expended into developing this pays dividends for yourself and your students. If there are any other grade C topics you wish me to add, please send me a message. I will endeavour to fulfil this.
Detailed lesson on interpreting real life graphs. Starte recaps previous learning. Introduction and several tasks and extension activities. Mini-plenary and plenary task embedded. Many thanks to fellow TES members for uploading some of the activities i have amended.
A comprehensive three part lesson. Starter recaps work on finding speed, distance and time. An introduction to distance time graphs. Main activity is differentiated with answers. Mini plenary and plenary task embedded. Worked solution to past exam question. I hope the effort in making this pays dividends for your students!
There are about 17 (practical and fun) lesson activities, tasks or worksheets to cover the following 2014 objectives:
Recognise angles as a property of shape or a description of a turn.
Identify right angles, recognise that two right angles make a half-turn, three make three quarters of a turn and four a complete turn; identify whether angles are greater than or less than a right angle.
This is one of the children's favourite activities to help understand angles. Ideas for children of all abilities to have fun learning about angles.
Thank you for downloading. Please look for the large files (Flip -chart and PDF) which contain all the resources without the Paws & Clause watermark.

A self-contained game to be played in pairs.
Use to revise reading coordinates on a grid. Best played once coordinates have already been introduced, as a consolidating activity.
Differentiated versions of the game within this pack, including use of the first quadrant only, as well as all four quadrants. You will also find instructions on how to play the game within your pack. Suitable for Years 4 and 5 (on one quadrant) and Year 6 and KS3 (on all four quadrants).
I have created this for a year 5 top set maths group. It is differentiated 3 ways, yellow being the less able, green able and pink more able.
This links in very heavily with shape as I am teaching this following 3 weeks on shape, space and measure, so it will continue to embed their knowledge of quadrilaterals, types of triangles, angles and parallel and perpendicular lines.
Hope this is useful! Have included photos of what it should look like once points have been plotted, hopefully I haven't made any silly mistakes! :-)
