Wednesday 20th May

Good morning Year 2's,

I hope you are having a good week so far. Haven't the weeks flown by? I think today should be a lovely, warm day so make the most of some outdoor play this afternoon!smiley I've had a peep at some of the work you have sent in so far this week and you truly are going from strength to strength.


Most of our learning is on our 'Everybody Week 7' page, (click on the link below for a short cut),  but your maths work is further down this page...

Our Maths Learning Today


Warm your pirate treasure hunting brain up with this game...



Today we will use our 'Describing Movement' learning so far  to create our own treasure hunt. You might like to use a larger piece of paper or a double page in your green book to set up a 4 x 4 grid. You can create a 6x6 or bigger grid if you want to create more challenge. See my picture below. Then choose in which  position you choose to place objects on your grid. Your challenge may be to get from your boat to the treasure, or to get from the map to the coins. Use the sheet I have included below.... ignore the fact that Luca has drawn on his!!!!

Record the movements made using your instructions.

For example, move  squares up, move two squares right. 
Can you find an alternative route?
How would the route change if you changed the start / end position?

Your sheets are included below; there are copies in your pack; although possibly not of the larger grid.

Have some fun with this and enjoy using the language of position and direction.
