Year 1 , 1/2 and Y2 using positional and directional language

Ahead of some map work we will be undertaking soon, Key Stage 1 have been practising using directional and positional language e.g forward, stop, step over, quarter turn the right/left. We also learnt about compass directions and followed a night line. We had to talk to our partner to keep them safe and give them directions.

See what we did…

Are you able to give directions when traveling to school?

KS 1 undertake the Big Bird Watch 2017

Some groups set up bird hides, other groups walked around the school grounds, as we undertook the RSPB’s bird watch 2017. We are learning to make tally charts, draw graphs and ask/answer questions about data, whilst collecting information about birds on our school grounds.

We saw lots of seagulls, wood pigeons and some blackbirds. We also saw a few blue tits, house sparrows and a robin. There are also some birds of prey that fly high above the M6 – could be kestrels or buzzards, which have been seen locally at Brockholes Nature Reserve.

Take a look …

What can you spot in your back garden or local park?
