Discussion question: Ask the children what they enjoy the most about being outdoors?
Talk to the children about the responsibilities that are needed to explore and be part of a successful team. Can they explain the benefits of teamwork from previous learning experiences?
Active learning: Divide the children into pairs of groups of 3 and sit them down together. Give the children 2-3 minutes to talk within their group. Ask the children to be positive about each other, giving everyone in their group a chance to talk. This gives the children chance to be positive about each other before starting the main activity.
Orienteering Number Dash.
Keep the children in the same group as their active learning. Prior to starting the activity spread out the Number Dash resource cards and provide each group with an answer sheet. Start one group on card one, another on card two and so on.
Explain the rules of the activity to the children (working out the maths sum on the card and recording their answer on the sheet as quick as they can) and set the timer!
Remind the children to be positive with each other, to stick together as a team and to use their maths fluency.
Keep a record of each team's completion time and use this to create a leader board. Once all groups have returned check the answers together and declare a winner.
