Learn all about drawing coordinate grids, plotting and reading coordinates, translating shapes on a coordinate grid and even how to use algebraic terms to describe translations! 'Position and Direction’ includes plenty of opportunities to build on children’s growing knowledge of geometry, but also includes clear, straightforward descriptions of more challenging and, possibly, unfamiliar, new concepts!

 
#TheCompleteSeries5lessons

All of the lessons in this Complete Series include a detailed plan with a choice of differentiated activities, a slideshow and a range of printable resources.

#Lesson1PlottingandDescribingCoordinates

Kick things off by recapping the features of coordinate grids, then remind children how to accurately plot coordinates. Following this, children can practise plotting coordinates in the first quadrant, either during the suggested main activity, or during the coordinates game suggested as an alternative activity!

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

 

What's included:

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Differentiated worksheets
  • Connect coordinates game
#Lesson2PlottingPolygons

As well as reading and plotting coordinates, children will learn how to connect coordinates in a given order to describe shapes and patterns. They will also start to visualise shapes by looking only at a set of given coordinates - they can then plot them on a grid to see if their visualisations were accurate!

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

 

What's included:

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Differentiated worksheets
  • ‘Connect coordinates’ game sheet
#Lesson3TranslatingShapes

Can your children translate coordinates? The included slides with this lesson show children how to translate entire shapes in the first quadrant of a coordinate grid they can then practise these skills during either of the two included activities.

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

 

What's included:

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Differentiated worksheets
  • 3D letters sheets
  • Blank coordinate grid
  • Translating shapes grid
#Lesson4LineGraphsandCoordinates

Within the included slides, children are challenged to draw comparisons between coordinate grids and line graphs; they are then challenged to plot the coordinates of sets of data, and use simple algebraic terms to describe differences between sets of data when plotted on graphs.

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

 

What's included:

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Differentiated worksheets
  • Coordinate grid sheets
#Lesson5SolvingProblems

In this lesson, children apply what they have learned about coordinates by solving a variety of problems - including word problems - where they must read, plot or translate coordinates or plot and read data using line graphs.

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