By the end of year 6 children should know and be able to read, write and use the following words:
Mirror line, line of symmetry, line symmetry, symmetrical, reflect, reflection, translation, axis of symmetry, reflective symmetry.
They should be able to test for symmetry using a mirror and by folding.
Children should be able to sketch the reflection of a simple shape in a mirror line where none or only some of the edges of the shape are parallel or perpendicular to the mirror line. This maths worksheet contains the types of question that often come up in their SATs at the end of the year and often prove to be one of the questions that large numbers of children get wrong. A mirror really is very useful for this.
