Year 5 Translations (Part 1) Worksheets | KS2 Geometry: Position & Direction | Primary Maths

Year 5 | Translations of Shapes Worksheets

These Year 5 shape translation worksheets present an engaging task for your pupils. They are prompted to translate groups of shapes based on instructions like “3 squares to the left” or “5 squares to the right, three squares up”. The shapes are situated on a square grid, providing a visual aid to reinforce the concept of translation. In the second part of the worksheet, your class encounters a new shape on a different square grid. Now, the challenge is for learners to translate this shape “seven squares to the right and two squares down”, requiring them to accurately draw the new position of the shape.

Pupils solidify their understanding of shape translation through hands-on practice, reinforcing the concept of moving shapes in different directions on a grid. The square grid in this Year 5 shape translation worksheet provides a visual aid that enhances understanding, allowing pupils to see the effects of translation on shapes in a tangible way.

Our Year 5 shape translation worksheets are aligned with KS2 geometry: position and direction on the primary national curriculum. All of our Year 5 geometry: position and direction worksheets can be combined with your ideas for primary maths activities, learning resources, teaching material, visual aids, games, differentiation, display boards, homework, and lesson plans.
