Year 2 have been learning about positional and directional language. They worked in pairs to direct each other in a Where’s Wally game to get Wally to collect various items on the board. They used language such as left, right, forwards, quarter turn, half turn and whole turn.

The children also went outside and gave each other instructions to move in different ways around the playground.

Today, they worked collaboratively to see how many different ways they could get Jack to the top of the Beanstalk.
