Year 1 Maple Class. Fun with directions.
Maple class joined Willow class in the playground to have fun with directions. We gave each other directions on how to get from one place to another. We could only use the words ‘forward’, ‘backward’ and half or quarter turns. We also had fun giving instructions to the adults to get them walking around the playground with their eyes closed!
We are talking about story settings and how to write interesting descriptions. We went outside and the children were asked what they could see, hear and smell. We all wrote lots of great describing words and then returned to the classroom to compile some super sentences. We came up with lots and lots of describing words.
We had big happy spiders with an amount written on them. We had to put the correct coins on the spider so that each leg added up to that amount. Each leg had to be different. You could try this at home.
