Classroom Ideas

This could be a good clip to play to introduce key vocabulary used when giving directions. It could be used at the start of a lesson to help introduce the vocabulary or as part of the plenary to help reinforce key vocabulary. An assault course could be set up in the hall using plastic cones and one pupil blindfolded while others give directions and instructions to move from one point to another, reinforcing the language of position and movement as they do this.
