10 in 10: Complete the 10 questions in 10 minutes.
13 + 11 = 37 + 29 =
12 + 4 + 8 = 13 + 6 =
39 – 4 = 46 + __ = 92
20 + __ = 100 __ - 28 = 53
46 + 30 = 81 - __ = 38

Learning objective: I can describe the direction and movement of 2D shapes.
I have put some words in bold and I would like you to think about what they mean.
2D shapes _________________________________________________________
Describe means to give more information about something.
The direction is the way that something travels, such as up, down, left or right.
Movement means that something is travelling from one place to another.
2D shapes are completely flat, they have sides and vertices. An example of a 2D shape is a triangle.
Today we are looking at the movement and direction. This means that we need to know which way is left and which way is right. Hold your hands out in front of you, with your palms facing down. The hand that makes an ‘L’ is your left hand and the other is your right hand. This will help us to know which direction to travel in.
In focus: Look at the image below. How do we get from the red square to the blue square? Discuss this with somebody at home.
Let’s learn: Let’s look at the in focus together. We need to get the red square into the same space as the blue square. To do this, we can start by getting the red square into the same column as the blue square, by moving it 4 spaces to the right. Now they are in line with each other, we can move the red square down 3 spaces to put them in the same place.
When we are moving shapes on a grid, it is often easier for us to move the vertices and join the shape once we know where it is going to go. For example, looking at the image below, if we wanted to move the triangle 2 spaces down and 2 spaces to the left, we could mark this out from each of the vertices. Once we have done this, we can join the vertices to form the sides of the shape.
Look at the image below. Move the shapes 2 spaces to the right.
Challenge: Describe how the triangle gets to spaces A, B and C.
