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.

You are learning to use the correct names for your shapes and your maths position language. It can be tricky to give clear intrusions using your voice and not pointing your hands. Remember to keep on practising. Playing Simon says and learning in the playground can be a way of helping.
