This afternoon we are going to look at prepositional language and you will need to get up and moving to do your maths as it is a practical maths lesson.

You can either use yourself or a toy as long as you do the activities safely.

A preposition is a word that tells us where something is like on top of, under neath, behind, in between etc. We may know it as positional language too.

Grown-ups use the words below and either get the children to do the actions or use a toy to do it with.


For example, ask your child to put their teddy on the shelf, under the bed, behind the chair etc. 


I have added some ideas below for some activities/games you could play.
