This is a 5-8 day unit of work for teaching Position and Direction objectives in year 1. The children will love the Mr Whirligig character and his inherent dizziness and silliness, who will guide them through this great fun unit of work!
In this resource pack, you will find: Lesson plans, differentiated worksheets (LA, MA, HA plus a challenge sheet for deeper understanding/mastery), answer sheets for all activities, interactive PowerPoints, support materials and flipcharts for whole class teaching (in ActivInspire, PowerPoint and PDF format). This pack will save you hours and hours of planning, resourcing, differentiating, finding challenging activities and generating flipcharts all for an amazing price. In addition, worksheets are uploaded in both PDF and Word. NOW ADDED: A poster for display that could also be sent home for revision and random worksheet generators!
