The First Quadrant
Notes and Guidance
Children recap work from Year 4 and Year 5 by reading and plotting coordinates in the first quadrant (the quadrant where both 𝑥 and 𝑦 coordinates are positive.). Children draw shapes on a 2-D grid from given coordinates and may use their increasing understanding to write coordinates for shapes without plotting the points.
Which axis do we look at first?
Does joining up the vertices already given help you to draw the shape?
Can you draw a shape in the first quadrant and describe the coordinates of the vertices to a friend?
