National Curriculum: Geometry - Position and Direction - Year 6

National Curriculum: Geometry - Position and Direction - Year 6

  • 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.

Non-Statutory Guidance

Pupils draw and label a pair of axes in all four quadrants with equal scaling. This extends their knowledge of one quadrant to all four quadrants, including the use of negative numbers.

Pupils draw and label rectangles (including squares), parallelograms and rhombuses, specified by coordinates in the four quadrants, predicting missing coordinates using the properties of shapes. These might be expressed algebraically for example, translating vertex (a, b) to (a - 2, b + 3); (a, b) and (a + d, b + d) being opposite vertices of a square of side d.
