Themes

Planned Activities
   Organise to take a small group on a bear hunt in your outside area.
Read the clues or have picture clues. ‘Your first clue is ‘in the
tree/under the bucket/over the sand pit’ etc. Clues eventually lead to a
bear.
   Let the children hide bears and give their friends directions on where to
find them. Photograph the places where the bears were hidden and
make up a book. Use a talking photograph album and let the children
record where the bears are.
   Set up an obstacle course and model the use of positional and
directional language.
   Show the children how to programme the Bee Bot. Use him on a grid
and see if the children can direct him to the bear.

Key Vocabulary

Key questions

Play Activities

   Outside- Provide bears to hide and clip boards and pens. Encourage
the children to draw their own maps to show their friends where the
bears are hidden.
   Provide dens for full grown ‘bears’ to hide in. Later provide open ended
resources for children to create their own dens – blankets, pegs,
crates, large cardboardboxes etc
