Bearings and Map Scales - 9 worksheets

These 9 worksheets provide an introduction to measuring and drawing three figure bearings beginning by looking at the 8 points of the compass. The practical uses of bearings in the real world are emphasised by requiring students to work through word problems with varying levels of support. There is a lot of opportunity for practising measuring and drawing angles up to 360°. Revise angle vocabulary and apply basic angle facts. As an additional feature sone of the examples also require diagrams to be measured so the map scale can be used to find the actual real life distance.

Reading tasks-The Dancing Bear by Michael Morpurgo

There are ready made comprehension questions based on the book The dancing Bear by Michael Morpurgo. Each question is page linked and there are two copies of the questions on each card ready to be trimmed for pupils to use. In addition there is a bingo task card for independent work also linked to the book and a word search too. I haven't linked it to any year group in particular as with differentiation I feel it could be used with any year group in KS 2.

This is a lesson I put together after my year 9 class struggled on a bearings question in an exam, I orginally broke this down and taught it as two lessons. The students really enjoyed finding bearings across the classroom, use thin string as it is easier to measure using the protractors.
