Year 4 Explore Symmetry

In Maths this week, Year 4 have been looking at how to use a mirror to find lines of symmetry within 2-D shapes. They were shown how to place the mirror accurately to ensure how to line lines of symmetry. Some of the shapes were trickier than others, so the children had to use their knowledge of regular and irregular shapes to identify these, to check if that shape had any lines of symmetry. The next challenge for Year 4 will be to see if they can use their mirror skills to reflect a shape over a horizontal or vertical line of symmetry. Good Luck!
