Teaching angles

    please can someone tell me if angles (e.g. Right, acute, obtuse etc) are covered in year 2 at all?
    Im teaching angles to year 3, but not sure what theyve covered so far the previous year.
    The new curriculum says angles are ks2, but then some resources websites have year 2 angles worksheets, so am confused. Dont want to reteach what they already know.
    Thanks for any help.

    Even if they have covered them at all, and each school /teacher may interpret the (very vague) expectations in different ways, I doubt if they remember them. So start with a 10 min revision to assess and then plan A, B or C depending on what happens in that session.
    Generally it's been my experience that sometimes right angles have been encountered before year 3. So I'd make sure they understand what a right angle is and how to recognise them. Then important that they realise an angle is a turn' and the degrees measures the amount of turn.
    Even in Year 5 they only tend to be secure on right angles and acute angles, with some having an understanding of obtuse.
