hi all, just after some advice and ideas?
am teaching an observed lesson with yr2 with the learning objective being to use directional language.
my plan is to read a pirate related book, perhaps buried treasure, pirate pete or the night pirates, then introduce task of looking for buried treasure outside. Recap directional language for directing partner to treasure.
My query is how to set up outside. give children certain places to direct their partner to and check for treasure, give them a map to identify potential areas to direct partner to. they'd need to use language such as anticlockwise, quarter turn etc. Just unsure as to how this bit would work. Can picture it in my mind, but cant think of how to organise it. Im thinking not to actually put any treasure outside, but when they come inside, ill describe somewhere in the classroom using positional language, and then they find it.
Hope you can help
