    • Hi abrean,
      Thanks for letting us know that there's an issue with this resource. I'm sorry to hear this.
      I've taken a look at this and it appears to open and display properly for me here. I will send a copy of the resource through to you. If you're still having trouble, let me know and I'll have another look :)

  • Compass directions 2 star directions and answers:
    1. From the start go north 4 squares and west 2 squares. Where are you now? taxi rank - correct

    2. Go north east 1 square and east 2 squares. Where are you now? your answer: the church, This would assume you move from the taxi rank.

    3. Go south 2 squares and south east 2 squares. Where are you now? Your answer: at the hospital. If moving from the church you would be at the police station.
    Please check this and make the instructions clearer. Most children went back to the start each time, rather than moving on from the last 'answer'.

      I'm sorry this activity was confusing for some of your children. I'll get this resource checked right away!

  • Hi, I can't seem to download the resources - it says Windows can't open the folder and that the file name/address is invalid.  I've downloaded some other things so I don't think it's me or my computer.  Could you have a look?  Thanks.

  • I used this with my Y4, they loved it. Then drew their own maps with similar directions and switched with a friend. We didn't use the answer sheet as we group marked and discussed differences.

  • The answers on worksheet 2 have not been fixed!! So frustrating when children are trying to self-assess and the questions on the worksheet do not match the questions on the answer sheet! EG. Q5 Go NW 1 square and W 1 square. While the answer sheets asks Go NE 1 square and SE 1 square. Come on Twinkl, there are just too many mistakes on resources for a premium service. It's becoming a bit of a joke at our school which is a real shame as we love the resources you create :(

    • Hi secox128,
      Thank you very much for commenting! It's great to hear from you :)

      Yes, this resource has been fixed and is good to go :)

  • Argh! Twinkl! The Compass Directions 2 star activity isn't doable and the answers are all wrong - something goes wrong very early wrong. It isn't just that the answers are wrong, it isn't actually possible to "go west four squares" if the instructions are followed.. really frustrating as when I download these things it's to save time so I'd rather not have to go over them with a fine tooth comb to check for errors.

    It would be such a wonderful resource otherwise but as it is it just caused by homeschooled child a great deal of frustration (even though I explained to him that it was the worksheets fault not his that it couldnt be completed!)

    incidentally, this student also pointed out the 'cutless' is spelt cutlass ! (Awkward, I had to double check that one myself!)

    • Oops ok sorry was panicking and got into a muddle - it *is*
      possible to follow the instructions after all, it's just that the answers aren't right which meant when I went to help my tutee it was we who got into a right old muddle.

    • Has this been fixed yet? I still can't see how you get to the 2 star answers - do you go back to the start or not? Even if you do go back to the start, it doesn't seem to work out. Not happy!
