Key Mathematical Concepts

• There are words that are used to describe your location or the location of objects in relation to other objects (in, on, under, between, beside,
behind, in front of, below, near, nearer, further away)
• There are words that are used to describe your movement or the movement of objects in relation to other objects (over, under, through, between,
along, turn, around, up, down)

Key Aspects of Thinking and Working Mathematically

• Using vocabulary associated with location and movement

• Differentiating between own location and movement and someone else’s location and movement

Appendix A

Hello Tirkandi,

You have been chosen to go on a treasure hunt. There are some directions for you to follow.

You will look for clues and at the end, you will find some treasure! Listen to Mrs Ramsey and

Mrs Bitter at all times. Are you ready?

Have fun! J

To begin the treasure hunt, you need to quietly walk over and make a line near the classroom


Now, walk quietly in a straight line towards the open door that will take us outside and line

up against the wall that is near Yipti.

When Mrs Ramsey says go, we need to take 30 steps forwards, we should be able to see our

next clue when we are done.


When Mrs Ramsey says ‘treasure!’, very slowly, tip toe towards the swings, and stop when

you get to the swing that is near the playground. Do not go on the playground, otherwise the

treasure will disappear.


You now have clue number 2. When Mrs Ramsey says ‘pirates!’, walk and stand next to the

nearest tree.

You are getting closer. When Mrs Ramsey says ‘hunters!’, have a look between the poles that

are near the basketball court for your next clue.


Not long to go now! Hop towards the nature garden and have a look near there for your next



I can practically smell the treasure now. When Mrs Ramsey says ‘treasure time!’, you must

walk with fingers on lips, towards the classroom door where you line up! Do not go in the

classroom, as you will reach one more clue.


Mrs Ramsey, please open the door very quietly and ask Tirkandi to look near the yellow table.

I think you will find your treasure there!

Congratulations Tirkandi!
