Arrow to show progress from Year 1 to Year 2.

Visualise 2-D shapes and 3-D solids; identify shapes from pictures and orientations; sort, make and describe shapes, referring to their properties

Identify objects that turn about a point (e.g. scissors) or about a line (e.g. a door); recognise and make whole, half and quarter turns

  Recognise and use whole, half and quarter turns, both clockwise and anticlockwise; know that a right angle represents a quarter turn

Visualise and use everyday language to describe the position of objects and direction and distance when moving them, for example when placing or moving objects on a game board


Follow and give instructions involving position, direction and movement



Identify reflective symmetry in patterns and 2-D shapes and draw lines of symmetry in shapes
