Looking at Directions with a Compass

During our topic lesson today we were looking at directions – North, East- South and West. To begin with they were given a starting point and a clue, then using a compass they had to work out directions to find a letter and another clue , these were found around the school grounds, the children were excited when they found out there was treasure to be found at the end. They worked collaboratively to solve what the letters made ‘CASTLES’ which is our theme for this term. The children then looked at how the compass shows north and we noticed that it’s not always forward.
