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: use a quarter turn and understand the maths position words.

It was hard when: we played Simon says because sometimes Kerri tricked us and it was hard then.

I really liked: making the shapes that the people say.

Kerri thinks

Jamie, what a great job you have done with this learning! You use the correct names for the shapes and use maths position words to give instructions. I am glad you enjoyed this learning and that I managed to trick you during Simon says and keep you thinking!
