Rotation

  • Year group: Year 2
  • Term: Summer
  • Topic: Geometry
  • Duration: 3 weeks
  • Keystage: KS1
  • Age Range: 6 to 7 yrs
  • Unit can be taught out of sequence: Y
  • Week Range: 1 - 3

In this chapter, pupils describe turn and movement in a straight line.

Pupils continue to use mathematical vocabulary to describe position, direction and motion, including movement in a straight line. They distinguish between rotation as a turn and in terms of right angles. They describe quarter, half and three-quarter turns, both clockwise and anti-clockwise.

Pupils describe turn by applying rotations in right angles. This ought to be done in practical contexts. For example, pupils may move themselves, give instructions to other pupils or program robots.

Rotation

Enabling pupils to develop their mathematical reasoning skills through independent work is a key element of the Mathematics Mastery programme.

This activity explores the concept of rotation.

• Pupils should complete these tasks using concrete manipulatives as part of the CPA approach
• Pupils should be encouraged to explain their working in full sentences
• These tasks may be adapted with pupils working in pairs to encourage mathematical discussion

Rotation

Deepening pupils’ understanding of key mathematical ideas is a core element of the Mathematics Mastery programme.

Our Key Constructs highlight the essential mathematical concepts all pupils are expected to grasp within each year group, with accompanying guidance for assessing pupil progress.

Our Key Constructs are closely aligned to the National Curriculum’s objectives. We know these can be tricky to evidence, so we’ve included an example task for each concept, as well as ideas to support slower-graspers and depth tasks to challenge higher-attaining pupils.

• Pupils should work through the tasks independently
• Teachers should incorporate the CPA approach to support pupils’ learning
• Opportunities for depth and scaffolding are built into each task

Rotating a shape around a point. Whole lesson +AFL

A lesson and worksheet AFl assessed through ABCD cards. I have used this for a very low ability year 9 group NOTE: I have taken parts from other peoples powerpoints but I cannot remember who they were so I apologise. I thought putting them in this form was particularly useful

Rotational symmetry

I can't take credit for the main PowerPoint presentation. All I have done is make adjustments to suit my class and included a range of SAT style starters. The worksheets will cover a few days work and are suitable for different abilities. Some of them also include an extension that ran alongside our work on space and shape, so check these to make sure they are suitable for your class. Hope this helps!

Rotator

This is an interactive tool to model shape rotation and discuss line symmetry. Turn the shapes by half a turn or a quarter of a turn, both clockwise and anti-clockwise. A useful variation is to turn a shape whilst pupils have their eyes closed, then ask pupils to identify which rotation you applied.
