Maths:  Today in Maths we are going to be learning about directions and turns using mathematical vocabulary. Full turn, half turn, quarter turn, three quarter turns,

Here are today’s videos:


There two short videos to watch about directions are instructions like 'three steps forward' or 'one step backwards'. These tell you how far to go.

Turns can be clockwise (the same way the hands on a clock move) or anti-clockwise (the opposite way to a clock's hands).

You can turn a quarter, half or complete turn - this would take you back to where you started.
