describe position, direction and movement, including whole, half, quarter and three quarter turns.
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 anticlockwise).
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.
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.
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.
recognise and name common 2-D and 3-D shapes, including:
2-D shapes [for example, rectangles (including squares), circles and triangles]
3-D shapes [for example, cuboids (including cubes), pyramids and spheres].
identify and describe the properties of 2-D shapes, including the number of sides and line symmetry in a vertical line
identify and describe the properties of 3-D shapes, including the number of edges, vertices and faces
identify 2-D shapes on the surface of 3-D shapes, [for example, a circle on a cylinder and a triangle on a pyramid]
compare and sort common 2-D and 3-D shapes and everyday objects.
draw 2-D shapes and make 3-D shapes using modelling materials; recognise 3-D shapes in different orientations and describe them
recognise angles as a property of shape or a description of a turn
identify right angles, recognise that two right angles make a half-turn, three make three quarters of a turn and four a complete turn; identify whether angles are greater than or less than a right angle
identify horizontal and vertical lines and pairs of perpendicular and parallel lines.
compare and classify geometric shapes, including quadrilaterals and triangles, based on their properties and sizes.
identify acute and obtuse angles and compare and order angles up to two right angles by size.
identify lines of symmetry in 2-D shapes presented in different orientations.
complete a simple symmetric figure with respect to a specific line of symmetry.
identify 3-D shapes, including cubes and other cuboids, from 2-D representations
know angles are measured in degrees: estimate and compare acute, obtuse and reflex angles
draw given angles, and measure them in degrees (o )
angles at a point and one whole turn (total 360 degrees )
angles at a point on a straight line and 1/2 a turn (total 180 degrees )
other multiples of 90 degrees
use the properties of rectangles to deduce related facts and find missing lengths and angles
distinguish between regular and irregular polygons based on reasoning about equal sides and angles.
draw 2-D shapes using given dimensions and angles
recognise, describe and build simple 3-D shapes, including making nets
compare and classify geometric shapes based on their properties and sizes and find unknown angles in any triangles, quadrilaterals, and regular polygons
illustrate and name parts of circles, including radius, diameter and circumference and know that the diameter is twice the radius
recognise angles where they meet at a point, are on a straight line, or are vertically opposite, and find missing angles.
