Today in Nursery we are focussing on using our language to describe where things are. Eg. The owls are 'on' a branch- the owls are 'in'a hole. You will find some pictures below of some teddy bears, can you have a look and help your child talk about the position of teddy. Positional language skills are important for children as later on in their education they will use these words to talk bout where they hear sounds in words, and this will help them with their reading and writing. If you have younger children you might like to read a story or have a look at our story section on here and then think about some of the questions below to help your child's understanding.
Have a look at these developmental guides for your child depending on their age in months:
22-36 Months Understands ‘who’, ‘what’, ‘where’ in simple questions (e.g. Who’s that/can? What’s that? Where is.?).
30-50 months: Shows understanding of prepositions such as ‘under’, ‘on top’, ‘behind’ by carrying out an action or selecting correct picture.
