Worksheet Overview

This worksheet is about shapes that have turned.

 

Shapes may be turned a quarter clockwise, a quarter anticlockwise or by half.

Remind yourself of the clockwise and anticlockwise direction and think of the hands turning on a clock or a watch.

 

 

Let's look at the letter E.

 

Here it is in its correct position:

 

 

When we turn it a quarter turn clockwise it goes from the original to this position.

 

When we turn it a half turn it goes from the original to this position.

For half turns, we can go clockwise or anticlockwise – it doesn't matter!

 

  

 

When we turn it a quarter turn anticlockwise it goes from the original to this position.
