I hope you are enjoying learning about position and movement. Today you are going to carry on learning about describing position, using mathematical vocabulary. This is a practical lesson and if we were in school we would use cubes to do this. If you don't have cubes at home I would suggest cutting up the cubes on your worksheet for today, see below.  If the worksheet is printed in black and white your first job is to colour it in matching the colours shown.  You could also maybe use coloured lego or duplo bricks or coloured blocks if you have them. 

Resource to cut up and colour if needed

Once you have got your resources made then you are ready to start the lesson! Use the PowerPoint presentation lesson 5 to make the cube structures and describe the positions. Discuss the following questions:


  • How we can describe the position of ___?
  • Where is the ___ in relation to ___?
  • Can the position be described in a different way?
  • Which colour cube is above / below / left / right?
  • The ___ cube is ___ the ___ cube.
  • The ___ cube is to the ___ of the ___ cube.
  • The ___ cube is in the middle of the ___ and ___ cube.


Its is important to use the following mathematical vocabulary:

  • below
  • above
  • left
  • right
  • in the middle


It would be good to stick the cube structures in your Home Learning book and write some sentences about each one. I think you will have fun with this lesson. smiley
