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 (don’t show your buddy). Using our maths words describe how to make the pattern. Remember to give accurate clear instructions.
- I use the correct names for shapes
- I use our maths postiton words
- I give clear instructions about position
- I follow postion instructions

I can: Put the shapes where they need to be because people are good at telling me where they need to go.
It was hard when: I needed to tell people where to put the shapes because I can' t always remember the right words.
I really liked: Using the shapes because it's fun to make different patterns.
You have done a great job in you maths learning this term and I love the way you have practised using the maths position words to twll your buddy how to make the patterns. I am pleased you enjoyed this learning and I think Simon say's helped listen for instructions. It can be tricky to use your words when you can point your finger to help show your buddy, keep on practising.
