Giving directions and wild things!

Welcome back after the half term break.

Year 2 started the week with looking at position, direction and movement. We consolidated our knowledge of left and right and gave each other directions to reach a certain place in the classroom using the words: forwards, backwards, turn, left, right and steps. We will also be learning clockwise and anti-clockwise, quarter, half and three quarter turns and the compass points. Today we gave directions around a treasure map.

We also looked at the front cover of our new book Where The Wild Things Are and made a prediction as to what might happen in the book.
