We have been learning that 'prayer' is the special word that describes the way we talk to God. Identify with children prayers that have learned or begun to learn over the year. Lead our class prayers at home with your families.
Task: Write your own personal or family prayer that you can share together.
Children will learn how to use simple compass directions (north, south, east and west) and locational and directional language to describe the location of features and routes on a map. Play a game outside where children have to run between identified compass points to consolidate vocabulary. View the PowerPoint and label the compass point sheet.
Look at the blank treasure map. Introduce the key that is used on maps and point out the compass in the corner – revisit that North is at the top of the map. Show the four places (mountains, lake, forest and cottage) and the key. Ask children to cut out the pictures and place on the map in the correct position – NSEW.
