Making Patterns with Shapes Lesson

This Year 2 Making Patterns with Shapes lesson covers the prior learning of making patterns with 2D shapes, before moving onto the main skill of making patterns that include direction and turns.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for that step. 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.

National Curriculum Objectives
Mathematics Year 2: (2P2) 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)
