              Reflecting Shapes on a Grid

              Students learn about reflecting shapes on a grid using horizontal, vertical and diagonal mirror lines.  As learning progresses they describe the line of symmetry as a straight line graph.The start recaps reflective and rotational symmetry as this is needed throughout the remainder of the lesson.  The plenary challenges students to reflect an object in a vertical, horizontal and diagonal mirror line.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to reflect an object in a vertical and horizontal mirror line on a grid.
              • Most students should be able to reflect an object in a vertical, horizontal and diagonal mirror line on a grid.
              • Some students should be able to perform and describe vertical, horizontal and diagonal reflections on a grid.

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]

              Priorities for the Spring Term

              At the start of the Spring Term these are three main priorities for me as the Head of Mathematics.

              Mutually Exclusive Outcomes and Events

              I teach mutually exclusive outcomes directly after students have encountered Venn diagrams. This is the fifth Year 8 Probability lesson.
