During our nature play sessions students will engage in a maths strand programme around position and orientation.
1. Students will be able to follow instructions given in distances, for example 14 steps; direction, for example facing the library; and angle (turn), for example do a half turn clockwise (right). They should become proficient at following a series of instructions. Students should also be able to give instructions.
2. Students will describe their position using positional language such as next to, in front of, behind, between, to the right/left and simple diagrams and maps. Their descriptions should become increasingly precise in terms of distance from the landmark (in steps) and location of that landmark on simple schematic maps.
