Today you will be describing position.



Children use ‘left’, ‘right’, ‘forwards’ and ‘backwards’ to describe position and direction. They will describe the position of objects and shapes from different starting positions. You could use board games such as Snakes and Ladders and Twister to explore positional language. Where possible, this concept should be explored practically.
