When we were chalking our sounds outside, Matthew decided to draw a "x marks the spot". This has led onto lots of imaginative play involving pirates, ships, treasure and maps, with the whole class involved. Today the children took their treasure maps outside and went to see if they could avoid the traps, hot lava and sharks (!) to find the hidden jewels and gold. The directions involved going left/right/under/over and Max even had to walk backwards at one point!
