Maths - geometry

We have been learning about shapes and position words. Position words tell us where something is or where it is going. 

We use words like: On the cushion, on the mat, In front, behind, the back of the class, around, under, beside, between, middle, on top, in, through, out, off. 
We have also learned about turns and can make full and half turns. Quarter turns were new for us and can be tricky.

Task: Pick a picture of the blocks in a pattern (dont show your buddy). Using our maths words describe how to make the pattern. Remember to give accurate clear instructions.

Success Criteria:
  • I use the correct names for shapes 
  • I use our maths postiton words
  • I  give clear instructions about position
  • I follow postion instructions

My Shapes 

I use the correct names for shapes

I use our maths postiton words

I give clear instructions about position

I follow position instructions


I can: tell my buddy where to put the shapes.

It was hard when: to put the shapes on the right side.

I really liked: playing Simon says outside to help practise my words.

Jack you have worked really hard to learn and use the maths position words. You can give instructions to your buddy about where to put the shape so they can match the pattern. Remember to keep using your position words with your buddy and give lots of instructions so the shapes are on the correct size.
I am pleased you enjoyed Simon Says and learning in the playground. When learning is fun we are more successful.
