Describe Movement and Turns Lesson

This Year 2 Describing Movement and Turns lesson covers the prior learning of describing position, before moving onto the main skill of describing movement and turns.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning by completing an engaging extension task.
