In KS2 Maths, as you grow smarter, you'll explore cool things about where things are and which way they go. You'll learn about compass points and tricky words like horizontal and clockwise. In Year Four, you'll even discover degrees, like how many are in a spin, a half spin, or a quarter spin. You can also figure out other angles, like one twelfth of a spin!
To find positions, we use tools like compasses (they point to North) and protractors (they measure angles). A full spin has 360 degrees, a half spin has 180 degrees, and that's not just for circles - even a triangle and a straight line have 180 degrees!
Do you know North West from South East? How many degrees in a right angle? Test your brain with this fun quiz all about positions!Click to See How Quizzes Help Learning
