This sheet has a big grid at the top, with a star in one of the squares. Underneath are instructions for the children to follow e.g. from the star draw a green circle 3 squares south.
Covers 8 point compass directions.
This activity can be done anywhere. Work on reading compass directions first. The children use a compass to locate the points of the compass. This can be developed into a game to turn to face different directions. They then use the handout to draw what they can see to the North, South, West and East.
Catholic school assembly, mainly focusing on the bible, old and new testament stories, Noah and his ark and Jesus calms the storm, Acting out, prayers, songs. I did this with a Year 4 class, lasts approx 25 minutes.
After reading the story, children reflect on the 5 key words which the stones represent
1. eg Courage- David was not afraid to face the giant. 2.They also to provide evidence of this in the bible eg 'I'll go and fight this philistine'.
3. How can this be related to everyday life- It takes courage to fight the 'Giants' you will face in your life.
A self-contained game to be played in pairs.
Use to revise reading coordinates on a grid. Best played once coordinates have already been introduced, as a consolidating activity.
Differentiated versions of the game within this pack, including use of the first quadrant only, as well as all four quadrants. You will also find instructions on how to play the game within your pack. Suitable for Years 4 and 5 (on one quadrant) and Year 6 and KS3 (on all four quadrants).
There are about 17 (practical and fun) lesson activities, tasks or worksheets to cover the following 2014 objectives:
Recognise angles as a property of shape or a description of a turn.
Identify right angles, recognise that two right angles make a half-turn, three make three quarters of a turn and four a complete turn; identify whether angles are greater than or less than a right angle.
This is one of the children's favourite activities to help understand angles. Ideas for children of all abilities to have fun learning about angles.

I have created this for a year 5 top set maths group. It is differentiated 3 ways, yellow being the less able, green able and pink more able.
This links in very heavily with shape as I am teaching this following 3 weeks on shape, space and measure, so it will continue to embed their knowledge of quadrilaterals, types of triangles, angles and parallel and perpendicular lines.
Hope this is useful! Have included photos of what it should look like once points have been plotted, hopefully I haven't made any silly mistakes! :-)
Investigation and problem solving activity in which students identify all the different pentominoes, then fit them into shapes (50 different shapes, inc. 4 rectangles, 4 squares, 17 animals, 13 pictures (inc. car, train, plane, rocket, boat), 12 other shapes (inc. cross, yin and yang, heart)).
