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: I can use words like forwards and backwards and up and down and beside, under, between, through and over.

It was hard when: I lose the words and point my finger to help my buddy.

I really liked: leaning outside like going through the poles and up the slide.

Kerri thinks

Maths learning in the playground and playing Simon says helped us all to learn and practise using our maths position words. You showed me that you can go up the ladder and over the swing. It was tricky to give clear instructions so your buddy could make the shape pattern using your words and not pointing your finger. Keep on practising and it will get easier and easier!
