In KS2, pupils are expected to use a variety of prepositions to link nouns to another part of a sentence to show position, direction, timing or the relationship between parts of a sentence. They are used at the beginning of a prepositional phrase. This display pack includes a selection of common prepositions displayed on posters with examples of how each one can be used within a sentence and a challenge activity.

The posters could be used as part of a working wall, encouraging pupils to answer the challenge questions and add examples of sentences they have read or written themselves showing how different figurative language techniques could be used to create an interactive display.

What is a preposition?

A preposition comes before a noun, pronoun or noun phrase and can link these to another part of a sentence. They can show position or direction, timing or show the relationship between parts of a sentence.

This preposition shows position.

Dinner is at 6pm.
This preposition shows timing.

We learnt about the Romans.
This preposition shows relationship, ‘what’ they have learnt.

What are prepositional phrases?

A prepositional phrase is a group of words with a preposition at its head that is followed by a noun, pronoun or noun phrase. They can be used to modify a noun or verb. When they modify a verb, they are also known as an adverbial.

The prepositional phrases are bold in the sentences below.

The plane flew above the clouds.
