Week of 20/04/20

Over the next two weeks, we will be covering position and direction.

 

Our lessons will cover:

  • Describing movement
  • Describing turns
  • Describing movement and turns
  • Making patterns with shape

 

According to the National Curriculum, children in Year 2 must use mathematical vocabulary to describe position, direction and movement including movement in a straight line and distinguishing between rotation as a turn and in terms of right angles for quarter, half and three-quarter turns (clockwise and anti-clockwise). They must also be able to order and arrange combinations of mathematical objects in patterns and sequences.

WALT give instructions to describe movements

 

Yesterday’s worksheets were confusing. When following or writing instructions it’s important that you imagine that you are the animal or the object and pay close attention to which direction they are facing. Have a look at our example later on. 

 

Task 1

Ahoy there! Create a treasure hunt map. You can use the template below or create your own like I have here using squares of paper. Print out and use the images or draw a boat and a treasure chest on your grids.

 

Challenge

Draw additional items such as islands, maps and sunken ships.

 

Draw an arrow on your ship so that it is clear which direction you are facing. You are the pirate on the ship so you will be using ‘forwards’, ‘backwards’, ‘left’ and ‘right’.

 

 

Task 2

Write instructions to get from your ship to the treasure. You are the pirate on the ship so you will be using ‘forwards’, ‘backwards’, ‘left’ and ‘right’.
Record this on your grid. Choose your star depending on how confident you are feeling. 

 

Example:

You can print out the grid or write it out yourself.

Write a set of instructions on how to get from the ship to the treasure chest.

 

Write a set of instructions on how to get from the ship to the treasure chest. Make stops along the way to pick up maps, collect coins or even fight sharks.

 

Write a set of instructions on how to get from the ship to the treasure chest. Make stops along the way to pick up maps, collect coins or even fight sharks. Once you have found one route, have a look at finding alternative routes. You could also try moving your ship to different start point to find different routes.
