  • I downloaded the editable version but it doesn't all fit and some of the writing is outside the text box.  It also seems very complicated for Y1 as they only need to use the four basic compass directions

    • Hello again al.rose!
      This resource is aimed at the Australian for years 3 and 4 - you can find additional categories it fits into by clicking on the "Curriculum Links" tab. I've asked our resource creation team to look into whether it would be possible to create a Year 1 version. If we're able to do this, we'll be sure to let you know. Enjoy the rest of your day :)

    • I found this resource by going to KS1 curriculum aims and clicking on field work skills.- Curriculum Resources » Geography » Key Stage 1 » Geographical Skills and Fieldwork » Use simple compass directions (North, South, East and West) and locational and directional language to describe the location of features and routes on a map)

      So it is in the Year 1 part of english national curriculum

  • We are home-schooling our 9 year old son, who has autism. he loves geography and we are learning about Europe at present. We used this to support his learning around the orientation of countries when looking at a map. He really enjoyed the game and it was a very good tool to discuss different ways of getting from A to B
