 Good morning Year 1's. I hope you are having a good week so far. The classroom is really coming on, so I will film a 'tour' when I am next in school tomorrow.  Mrs Rogers, myself and all of the staff at school are so disappointed that we haven't been able to have you all back at school. We were so much looking forward to having another school summer trip too.laugh But... as long as everyone is safe and well that is the main thing and the learning that you have been doing has been exactly what we would have been doing had we been in school, so a HUGE well done to you for keeping up. We are going to be inviting you to drop any particular pieces (or all) of your home learning books in for us to look at and celebrate both on  our class pages but also to put on display in school. Don't worry; this isn't to 'check up' on your work, but to show you that we value all of the effort you have put into it.  We will then be awarding certificates at the end of the term. So start having a little look at anything you would like to bring in to us.

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.  

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 lessonsmiley
