Now watch the Gentle Cindy sound pack and have a go at joining in.
Replay and try again. Remember that when a ‘G’ or a ‘C’ is followed by either an ‘E’, ‘I’, or ‘Y’ the sound is softened and turned into a ‘j’ or a ‘s’ sound, respectively.

Where must the ‘E’, ‘I’, or ‘Y’ be to make the ‘G’ and ‘C’ say their soft sounds ‘j’ and ‘s’?

Numeracy Learning
Maths: (To be submitted)Numeracy
Location 14.5.20

Learning Intention:
We are learning to give and follow directions to a familiar location.

Success Criteria:
I can give and follow a set of directions to get from one place to another.  
 
To start, play:
Locations on a grid: https://au.ixl.com/math/foundation/location-in-a-grid

Activity:
Today, you are going to design a Treasure Hunt! You are going to hide an object, like a toy, coin or something small in your house, or out in your yard, and get a family member to try to find it. You will give them a series of directions and see if they can find your ‘Treasure’!

Steps:
Choose a small object as your ‘treasure’.
Write the heading ‘Location’ and todays date in your scrap book.
Choose where you are going to start from. A good place might be your work table. Write a series of directions clues to where you are hiding your object. You could use words like left, right, backward and forward and how many steps.
When you are happy with the clues, get a family member to read them out (or read it for them), and see if they can find your treasure!
If they didn’t find it, check your directions are accurate, fix any mistakes, and go together again to find the treasure.
Have fun!

Extra Challenge:
Draw a map that matches your directions. You could also make another trickier treasure hunt, using lots more directions.
You could even put one direction at each step on a piece of paper, and see if your family member can find it.
