A collection of lesson resources and worksheets. The notebook might look scant but it links to a really useful website that takes the children through the concept of reflective symmetry (albeit in an American accent!) Tell me what you think...
Really useful worksheets. I can't comment on the presentation as I don't have software to view it. I don't believe the Union Flag has any lines of symmetry, look at the diagonals, they are not mirror images.
A resource to investigate reflective symmetry with built in differentiation.
Beginning with identifying the symmetry of 2D shapes leading to relective symmetry in all four quadrants.
There is also an activity that introduces translation.
Video clip from 1970s Vision On programme to help pupils understand reflective symmetry. (Choose Numeracy and then Maths 9 lesson and then just click on buttons at the bottom of the slide to navigate through the lesson)
A week's planning including worksheets and teaching aides introducing the children to the formal method of division (referred in plans as the bus stop method). Also included are related word problems and extensions.
The first week involving a literacy plan for learning about newspapers, including their structure. The plan involved the 2012 Olympics but also used nursery rhymes to help frame how a newspaper column is laid out.
The children often struggled with questions that masked to work out a missing coordinate so I pulled all the previous SATs questions I could find on this to go through and explain them. I also made a game to add in the missing point on a grid with four quadrants to make 2D shapes.
There are about 17 (practical and fun) lesson activities, tasks or worksheets to cover the following 2014 objectives: <br />
Recognise angles as a property of shape or a description of a turn.<br />
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. <br />
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.<br />
Thank you for downloading. Please look for the large files (Flip -chart and PDF) which contain all the resources without the Paws & Clause watermark. <br />

A self-contained game to be played in pairs.<br />
Use to revise reading coordinates on a grid. Best played once coordinates have already been introduced, as a consolidating activity.<br />
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).<br />
You will find a PDF version and editable Word version available for download; both are exactly the same, so download whichever is more convenient for you.
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.<br />
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.<br />
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! :-)
