Rotation, translation and reflection

Cool maths topic over the last week has focussed on symmetry and reflection, translation and rotation. Ask your child to explain the difference to you as by now they have a really good idea of each concept. As part of this we have created translating artwork. It involves the children having a square piece of card that they label PART then cut into four pieces. They turn PART into TRAP and make a shape they can trace into a tesselating picture. Awesome resulting art, well done guys!
