H to F is minus 2
U to W is plus 2

So

M minus 2 is K
E plus 2 is G

I thought this might be a mirror question, but then I can't get the answer KG

Thanks, 999 mum

You helped me to spot that I've got the answer wrong. The answer provided in the paper is in fact GB, which I can get from having it as a mirror question ^^

Playing with the alphabet can be a fun way of spotting the mirror questions:
Angry Zebras
Bright Yellow
Cat Xray,
Daft Wigs
Evil Villains

Anyway you get the idea. I ask my pupils to make up their own: grandma's toes and furry underwear, are some of my favourites!

We found it useful to learn them in reverse too as my son couldn't always remember them back to front so we tried things like

Vile Evil - anograme and same meaning worked really well
Hill Slope
Yatch Boat
Damp Wet

I think remember that the word means the same thing can help to remember.
