### To describe positions on a 2D Grid as coordinates

In this lesson, we will revise the names of different types of 2D shape. We will begin to explore how shapes can be referred to on a grid using coordinates. We will learn about the x and y axis and how to read coordinates to locate points on a grid. We will use the correct mathematical language for shape and coordinates for a variety of quadrilaterals.

### To investigate a problem, describing position on a 2-D grid as coordinates

In this lesson, we will revise prior learning about coordinates. We will continue to explore how points plotted on a grid can be referred to using coordinates. We will learn about the x and y axis and how to read coordinates to locate points on a grid. We will remember that one must read the x axis first followed by the y axis. We will investigate using our new knowledge.

### To Plot Specified Points and Draw Sides to Complete a Given Triangle

In this lesson, we will deepen our understanding of coordinates by plotting various types of triangle onto a grid. We will use our knowledge of triangles to name the type and follow instructions to meet a range of criteria.

### To Describe Movement Between Positions as Translations of a Given Unit Left/Right or Up/Down 1

In this lesson, we will begin to learn how to move a shape from one position to another on a grid. We will look at the translation of shapes a given number of units up, down, left or right. We will develop strategies to reposition these shapes and check that we are working accurately.

### To Describe Movement Between Positions as Translations of a Given Unit Left/Right or Up/Down 2

In this lesson, we will continue to move a variety of shapes from one position to another on a grid. We will look at the translation of shapes a given number of units up, down, left or right. We will further develop strategies to reposition these shapes and check that we are working accurately.
