Year 6 – Geography
Hello, one and all. I hope you are all well and keeping safe. Here are a few geography tasks for you to be working through. This topic is based on compass work and familiarising yourself with locations across the UK and parts of Europe. Try your best and if you have any problems you can contact us on the school app.
Use a pencil and a ruler to accurately draw a four- point compass, plotting correctly the directions N, S, E, W, (North, South, East and West). If possible, use a protractor to help you. (If you have any problems, you will be able to find a compass online. Also, all iPhones come with a built in compass).
Accurately draw an eight-point compass, adding the directions NE, SE, NW, SW. Think, NE (North East) will be found between N (North) and E (East).
Accurately draw a sixteen-point compass, adding the directions NNE, ENE, NNW, WNW, SSE, ESE, SSW, WSW. Think, NNE (North, North East) will be between N (North) and NE (North East).
