Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Marvellous Maths

This week there has been some fantastic learning happening in our Year One classrooms which we wanted to share with you.

In Maths we have been learning language related to position and direction e.g. above, below, underneath, on top of, top, bottom, up, down, left, right, forwards, backwards, around, half turn, quarter turn, whole turn, three quarter turn.  Below you can see pictures of some of us directing a blind folded friend to safety – we were pretending that we were on stepping stones which were over water that had sharks in and we didn’t want to fall in! We have also worked with the Beebots to direct them to various locations on a map which we wanted to visit using positional language.

To help us with our learning we have also been following dances which tell us the direction to go e.g.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2S340cmAaPQ , and in particular learning the choreography of the Cha Cha Slide.

Whilst playing game such as the ‘Hokey Cokey’ and ‘Simon Says’ we thought about the following questions:
•    Can we shake our left hand?
•    Can we shake our right foot?
