This pack contains posters and cards illustrating 21 different prepositions to support activities in KS2 English lessons.

Each poster and card is provided in two versions: labelled with the preposition it is illustrating, and unlabelled.

This primary resource is divided into five sections:

  • Preposition cards with text
    each image is accompanied with the preposition it is illustrating.
  • Preposition cards without text
    the pictures appear without their preposition so children can be challenged to identify prepositions in the poster.
  • Preposition A4 posters with text
    each image is accompanied with the preposition it is illustrating.
  • Preposition A4 posters without text
    the pictures appear without their preposition so children can be challenged to identify prepositions in the poster.
  • Teacher’s notes

This challenge features activities that include SATs-style questions and opportunities for creative writing responses, with eye-catching images as prompts.

What is a preposition?

A preposition links a following noun, pronoun or noun phrase to some other word in the sentence. Prepositions often describe locations or directions, but can describe other things, such as relations of time. Words like ‘before’ or ‘since’ can act either as prepositions or as conjunctions.

Preposition examples
