  • Hello, 
    Do you have a similar activity to this without NE, SW, NW and SE? I'm trying to find a simpler version.

  • Hi

    Can I check questions 3 and 4 of the second set? It seems that two of the cities end up in the same place?

  • Hi,
    This looks like a good resource for my year three class.

    Can I just ask for clarification on one of the questions? Question One (at the bottom of the page) says 'Swindon is south of London and Portsmouth is south of Swindon. What direction is Portsmouth from London?' If this were the case, it would be south (go south and then keep going south) and yet the answer is south-west.

    Please can you either correct it, or provide guidance about using maps to double check the position of the cities? Thank you.
