# Circles Lesson

This Year 6 Circles lesson covers the prior learning of using scale factors, before moving onto the main skill of naming parts of a circle and recognising the relationship between radius and diameter.

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