We have been learning about shapes and position words. Position words tell us where something is or where it is going.
We use words like: On the cushion, on the mat, In front, behind, the back of the class, around, under, beside, between, middle, on top, in, through, out, off.
We have also learned about turns and can make full and half turns. Quarter turns were new for us and can be tricky.
Task: Pick a picture of the blocks in a pattern (don’t show your buddy). Using our maths words describe how to make the pattern. Remember to give accurate clear instructions.
- I use the correct names for shapes

Atta, you know your shapes and can use maths words to help describe the patterns to your buddy. It can be tricky to give clear instructions without pointing and showing with your hands, you just need to keep on practising. I can see you really enjoyed playing Simon Says to help learn the postional language and you loved being Simon!
