EYFS/KS1 Activities: Understanding Directions
About This Primary Resource
This set of activities will help your pupils to become more spatially aware and learn how to follows basic directional instructions. This lesson plan is great to use as part of a Maths lesson as you can create a treasure hunt that relies on them using the different directions they have learnt i.e. stand in front of the door and take 3 steps to the left.
The Mouse Club is an award winning education website that aims to provide high quality games and activities that will inspire children and help them to achieve more. As well as a variety of free material they also have a series of very successful computer games which can be bought from their shop. These CDs are mentioned in the lesson plans, but the activities can still be completed without them (although we would suggest that you consider buying them as the games are excellent).
