This week was a really fun week in Maths. We were learning to give and follow directions, as well as read, interpret and make coordinate grid maps.

Some of the fun activities that we did were: battleships against Mrs Hind’s class (we won!), battleships with a partner, and drawing and labeling a treasure map with appropriate markings on the coordinate grid and coordinate map references.

We were lucky enough to have Sailing Victoria visit our school this week. They brought a small yacht. All the Grade 1/2s learnt the different parts of the yacht as well as the directional language used on a yacht. They then played a game where they had to run the correct way when the directions were called out to them. This fitted in very well with our current unit about locations and directions.

This week we extended our understanding of birds eye view to draw a bird’s eye view plan of our bedrooms. One of the things that were most challenging to draw was bedside drawers and cupboards. The students have then had the opportunity to make a diorama of their bedroom in a box. There have been some fantastic bedrooms made.

You can see a few photos below.

This week in Numeracy we have been learning about Location and Directions.
Students in 1/2 AC have been involved in learning about coordinate maps and birds eye view. They were required to draw a treasure map that had:
– x marks the spot
– a treasure chest
– a boat
– a key
They had to include at least one of the following:
– volcano
– quicksand
– swamp and
– palm tree

Here are some examples of students treasure maps.
