Students learn how to rotate an object on a grid using a centre, direction and amount of turn. As learning progresses the centre is given as a coordinate pair and on a Cartesian axes.

The start of the lesson is used to recap the difference between rotational and reflective symmetry. The plenary challenges students to describe two different and equivalent transformations.

**Differentiated Learning Objectives**

- All students should be able to perform a rotation where the centre touches the object.
- Most students should be able to perform a rotation on a grid.
- Some students should be able to perform and describe a rotation on a Cartesian grid.
