Learning outcome: To explore different grid systems and can use them to describe and locate positions
The class have been learning grid references and today we applied our learning in a game of ‘Battleships’. The class first observed Mrs Thomson playing against Mrs Braby. Once everybody had learned the rules and understood how to play ‘Battleships’, we were paired up with a partner to play our own game to try and find each other’s ships.
It demanded a lot of concentration to make sure we were finding and recording the grid references correctly. The first person to hit and sink all their opponent’s ships was the winner. There were some very exciting and close games!
