Observed Lesson - Year 3 Symmetry. Please Help!

Discussion in 'Primary' started by Mrs V, Feb 4, 2011.

  1. I am new to Year 3 (just started in Sept having been in Foundation). Needless to say i am worried about my observation. I would really appreciate any help or tips.

    I am doing symmetry. My ideas are to do a carousel type of lesson:
    A group on the computer (havent found a website yet, but will look),
    Peg boards to make a symmetrical pattern - challenge for more able to see who can get the most lines of symmetry.
    'Symmetry in nature walk' - children to go outdoors to look for symmetry and take flip camera to record findings - use this vid as plenary.
    Children to make symmetrical shapes with bodies lying on floor - to take photos from above (thought i would suggest alphabet shapes)
    Some paintings for lines of symmetry - maybe?
    A child drawing half symmetrical shape for friend to reflect.
    I'm not sure if this is too easy? Any help or ideas would be appreciated just so i know if i am on the right lines.
    Thank you :)
