Key Stage 1 Position and Direction Maths Spring Term Year 2

In this ‘Let’s Explore Position and Direction’ scheme of work for Year 2, your class will first begin by describing patterns and completing sequences, before using what they have learnt to create their own sequences.

 
#TheCompleteSeries5lessons

They will learn how to use the language of position and direction to move around a grid, as well as describing and following instructions for movement as part of a turn.

This downloadable Maths scheme comes with lesson plans, slideshow presentation and printable teaching resources.

#Lesson1Sequences

In this lesson, children begin by describing simple patterns within sequences. They then use these patterns to identify what the next object in a sequence would be. In their independent work, children continue sequences by identifying the correct shape from a given choice of three. Alternatively, children work in pairs to describe and identify sequences.

This downloadable lesson comes with a lesson plan, slideshow presentation and printable teaching resources.

 

What's included:

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Shape Cards
  • Differentiated worksheets
  • Pattern Strips
  • Pattern Identification Sheet
  • Photo Sheet
#Lesson2RepeatingPatterns

In this lesson, children further their knowledge and understanding of patterns by looking at more complex sequences involving a wider range of objects, colours and orientations. They also learn how to identify missing objects within a sequence. Children are given the opportunity to practise and consolidate this learning in their independent activities.

This downloadable lesson includes a lesson plan, slideshow presentation and printable teaching resources.

#Lesson3CreatingSequences

Children begin by identifying and discussing repeating patterns in a variety of sequences. They then use their knowledge and understanding to create and describe their own sequences containing repeating patterns of different lengths.

This downloadable lesson includes a lesson plan, slideshow presentation and printable teaching resources.

#Lesson4DescribingDirectionandMovement

In this lesson, children use simple vocabulary to describe direction and movement. They begin by reinforcing their knowledge and understanding of the terms up, down, left and right, before using them to describe various routes around grids. In their independent activities, children describe and follow instructions using a map of a zoo. In the alternative activity, children use their knowledge of direction and movement to play a game of ‘Cops and Robbers’.

This downloadable lesson includes a lesson plan, slideshow presentation and printable teaching resources.

In this final lesson, children first recap on their knowledge of quarter, half, three-quarter and full turns, including clockwise and anticlockwise movements. In their independent activities, children follow instructions to find out what shape is being pointed to after completing a given movement. In the alternative activity, children are challenged to move their bodies through different turns in order to find the answers to the ‘Which Insect? Challenge.
