In our second lesson of the week working with coordinates, the children used their knowledge to play a game of battleships. This involved playing against someone else in an attempt to sink their battleship. The two players took turns to call out coordinates, trying to ’hit’ one another’s ships. They continued this until one player had hit all the oppositions battleships and they were the winner! This activity also allowed the children to practice translating coordinates as they gave their next coordinate as a translation of the first.
