APPLYING CONCEPTS OF 3D OBJECTS

APPLYING CONCEPTS OF 2D SHAPES

- Identifies and draws right-angled, equilateral, isosceles and scalene triangles
- Compares and describes side and angle properties of quadrilaterals and triangles
- Classifies and draws 2D shapes from given features
- Uses the terms ‘translate’, ‘reflect’ and ‘rotate’ to describe transformations of shapes
- Identifies line and rotational symmetries
- Makes and compares enlargements of shapes

APPLYING CONCEPTS OF ANGLES AND GEOMETRY

UNDERSTAND POSITION, MAPS AND GRID REFERENCES

KLA APPLICATION AND CONSIDERATIONS

CREATIVE ARTS

- Explores and describes how patterns are made e.g. looking at the work of M.C. Escher
- Makes tessellations using tiles and blocks through flipping, sliding and turning
- Interprets perspective in drawings
- Builds models from cubes or own imagination and orders them in size to construct a cityscape

GEOGRAPHY

- Locates and uses small and large scale maps to identify location, latitudinal points, direction, scale, distance and map references
- Constructs maps to represent geographical data, using spatial technologies
- Describes places using local and global scales

HISTORY

- Outlines settlement patterns in 19th century Australia
- Uses a range of mapping strategies to communicate historical information

LANGUAGES

- Gives and follows simple directions in the target language, using landmarks and directional language, e.g. turn left at the post office
