Can somebody please look at my ideas for a compass points lesson with Y4. Starter- children are human compasses- face N, E, S, W NE, SE, SW, NW etc. Then give instructions face north, now turn to face east. What direction have you turned? Establish they have turned a half turn. GIve harder ones NE to NW get children to say they have turned quarter turned anti clock. Then a volunteer to face one direction and move to another and children to write on white boards the direction and turn they have taken. Or pairs to give each other instructions e.g start at SW and half turn clockwise. Main activity- treasure hunt on paper- all children with a list of directions to find treasure Lower- 8 point compass-walk one square north and 2 south west. Mid- face north, turn one. quarter clockwise, walk forward 4 spaces. Turn half way anti clockwise and move forward one space. Higher- i will work with this group- same as above but looking at angles eg 45/90/180 degrees. plenary- give children two cooridinates on map on IWB and ask them to direct me from one to the otother. Does this sound like a good lesson?
