SPAG

In class we have learnt about using prepositions to start sentences.

They can be used to tell where something is, or when something has happened.

 

Visit this page to find out more: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zs9ytrd

Watch the two videos, then have a go at Activities 1 and 2. Good luck with the quiz!

 

Then:

Look around the room you are in.

Write five sentences about the room using a different preposition in each sentence.

Challenge yourself to use these prepositions if you can:

  • between

  • opposite

  • beyond

For example: The door is opposite the bed.
