This week there is some work on angles followed by defining what horizontal and vertical means. The only angles that they need to be aware of are right angles (90), acute (less than 90) and obtuse (between 90 and 180). They don't need to be able to measure these using a protractor but if you want to show them how to do this that's fine. The other types of angle (reflex, straight line...) are looked at in Year 4 and beyond. If you have any questions about anything below please let us know.
Recognise and compare different angles
Draw and measure lines in cm, mm and to the nearest cm
Understand the terms horizontal and vertical and recognise horizontal and vertical lines of symmetry
