Cuddly Pinky directions

Good to see Solent University addressing the needs of all students, after all not everyone can read a plan well some need all the visual clues possible. Take a look their novel and amusing but well thought out take on a route finder

I wonder if the children would be able to write a description of the routes from this video or make a plan.... or even make their own for new children? ( addressing audience, planning, working cooperatively, understanding maps and directions)

Thanks to Miles Berry for sharing this .. hope you find your way OK

Think of the number of children who have laughed about and enjoyed his stories over the years, he was certainly a regular visitor to my classroom over the years,
and how many of them knew where Peru was on the world map but not their own town!

Off to drag my duffel coat out of the cupboard to wear while I drink cocoa and eat marmalade sandwiches virtually with, Simon Mills who has just let me know about it via Twitter, and anyone one else celebrating.
