Grid Map : Positions, Directions And Orientation

During maths we have been learning about position and direction using a grid map. We we're assigned to create questions using a grid map of a place of our choice. I have chosen a place somewhere in Tokyo, Japan and wrote questions to find the following grid references below. Using the compass direction, you must be able to find out which direction you would  be travelling from one place to another.

Aroha's Story & Poem

 “Aroha”, love in Maori, meaning “A quality to treat others in an affectionate way” parents never treated me like this.

I was taught to be obedient and proper, I had many responsibilities in the house, I need to learn how to be perfect or else my parents would think i’m a failure. I felt lost. It was demanded I abide my parents. All I want is their love and affection…

Cleaning and obeying is all I do, I don’t know who I am,

I’m not me, I’m not you.

My life is full of devastation and I need to cover it with a disguise,

my friends have my back but I’m still dead and broken inside.

I’ve got to do something, I’m on the edge,

I have to be quick before I fall off the ledge.

How am I going to face this?

The old self I miss,

I’m so lost in this never ending abyss.

My overthinking mind hurts from the sadness it brings.

The negative thoughts are overcoming my head. 

 I need to get up, I need to bring back my old self,

my voice needs to be heard as loud as it can

I need to focus on myself, on me and my brand
