Year 4 Describe Movement on a Grid Game

Teacher Specific Information

This Year 4 Describe Movement on a Grid Game has been designed to check pupils’ understanding of translation of points across a grid using left/right and up/down. Pupils will drag and drop words to complete the statement describing movement, determine a starting position of a translated shape, use a description to identify coordinates on a grid, describe a translation across a grid and identify the correct description of a given translation.
