Prepositions in English.


Prepositions are small words that help us to add extra information to sentences. Some of them tell us where or when things happen.
A number of related downloadable resources are available below. Try using them in the classroom in these ways:
  • Add the poster / banner to your classroom displays for children to refer to during independent writing activities.

  • Choose a preposition and challenge children to write an interesting sentence that includes that word. Children could also complete this activity in pairs.
