Location, Location, Location!

On Friday in Maths we were looking at the everyday language of location and direction such as 'between', 'near', 'next to', 'in front of' etc. 

Mrs Kennedy gave each group a card with a location word on it and then we created scenes using lots of materials to show our ideas.

We had to work with a partner to make our scenes so we had to talk about our ideas and then work together. When we finished we talked about working with a partner and how you need to cooperate and use some of your ideas and some of your partner's ideas. Mrs Kennedy said this is called 'compromising'. 

We recorded our work on the iPad using the app ShowMe. We tried to speak clearly and talk about what we had made. 


  1. Very interesting creations Preps! You all spoke so clearly! Well done!

  2. I had fun learning about locations with my friends Patrick and James. I also liked talking on the video. Hamish.
