Materials to support teachers and schools in embedding the National Curriculum

• Year 1: Geometry - position and direction

• describe position, direction and movement, including whole, half, quarter and three-quarter turns.

• Year 2: Geometry - position and direction

• order and arrange combinations of mathematical objects in patterns and sequences
• use mathematical vocabulary to describe position, direction and movement, including movement in a straight line and distinguishing between rotation as a turn and in terms of right angles for quarter, half and three-quarter turns (clockwise and anti-clockwise).

• Year 4: Geometry - position and direction

• describe positions on a 2-D grid as coordinates in the first quadrant
• describe movements between positions as translations of a given unit to the left/right and up/down
• plot specified points and draw sides to complete a given polygon.

• Year 5: Geometry - position and direction

• identify, describe and represent the position of a shape following a reflection or translation, using the appropriate language, and know that the shape has not changed.

• Year 6: Geometry - position and direction

• describe positions on the full coordinate grid (all four quadrants)
• draw and translate simple shapes on the coordinate plane, and reflect them in the axes.
