This week KS1 have been learning about 4 points on a compass; North, East, South and West.
We came up with a few rhymes to remember each of the points on the compass.
We like ‘Never Eat Silly Worms’ the best!
We had some brilliant discussions about compasses, how they work and how they help us with directions. We even labelled our classrooms with each compass point. During the lesson, each class went out onto the KS2 playground to ‘hunt’ for the compass. Once we found it we discussed where each arrow pointed to. We played some games so that the children had the chance to practise which direction each letter on the compass points to.
