Year 2: Position and Direction

Much of the work on Position and Direction in the Year 2 Programme of Study involves turning. Turns can be described in terms of right angles for quarter, half and three-quarter turns (clockwise and anti-clockwise) but they can also be described in terms of left and right.

There are plenty of practical opportunities in the house or in the garden and great fun can be had as children follow instructions to move and turn. This can also be backed up in the classroom and we have just produced two more sets of pages on left and right turns. Children are asked to describe movement through a maze, which is harder than it looks!
