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.
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 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.
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.
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 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.
This is an activity once you have taught children about quadrilaterals. For this activity, children will need to know about square, rectangle, rhombus, parallelogram and trapezium.
I would give children time to explore these shapes practically first and then give them this task. This is a cut-and-stick task where children have to match up the name and properties to the shape.
This is a week of progressive planning for year 4. The topic is position, movement and direction. Planning includes teaching points, key questions, ideas for differentiation, description of activities and key vocabulary. Children will be making their own compasses, engaging in outdoor learning and activities are from Nrich and Twinkl.
This is 4 days of progressive planning for year 4. The topic is angles, parallel and perpendicular lines. Planning includes teaching points, key questions, ideas for differentiation, description of activities and key vocabulary. Lots of links to real life. Children will be creating angles practically, identifying parallel/perpendicular lines around them and engaging in reasoning by comparing flags according to their shape/angles/properties. Activities for some of the lessons have been uploaded in my shop.
