positional language

In geography this week year 1 have ben talking about positional language.

We know lots of words like next to, in front of, behind, above and below.

We used these words to tell our friends where we wanted them to stand on a grid with pictures of Beatrix Potter characters.

We had lots of fun giving instructions to each other and then checking the instructions had been followed correctly.

Stand above the start

Stand next to Peter Rabbit.

We also looked at a compass and had a go at giving instruction to each other to move around the grid using North, South, East and West.

Take a step North from the start.
