Following on from yesterday, today we would like you to think about relative position and we have a great game you can play doing this. Relative position is thinking about where you are in relation to someone else or an object. 

So as a warm up someone will need to ask you to get into these 6 positions, you can play this game outside or inside and they can ask you to position yourself in relation to people or objects.


Here are some examples which you can amend to suit you: 

1. Can you stand behind your sister/ behind the washing line? 

2. Can you lay under the table/ under the bed? 

3. Can you go in the shed/ in the bath?

4. Can you sit on the bed/ on the chair?

5. Can you stand next to Mummy/ next to the sandpit?

6. Can you stand in front of the television/ in front of a tree? 


Did you listen carefully and find the correct positions? Did you need help with any? 


Now you need to use the correct vocabulary and say where you are in relation to the object/ person. Again here are some examples: 

1. I am behind the door/ behind the curtain. 

2. I am on the trampoline/ on the bike.

3. I am in the box/ in the car.

4. I am under the tree  /under the light. 

5. I am next to my brother/ next to my scooter. 

6. I am in front of the door/ in front of the dog.  


Did you think of some great positions? Did you use the correct vocabulary? Hopefully you did. smiley


Lastly do you remember when we spoke about left and right yesterday? Do you think you could stand to the left of someone or something and the right of someone or something? Make sure you use the correct vocabulary when you say where you are.

1. I am to the left of...

2. I am to the right of...

Can you remember which is which? Can you remember the special trick we spoke about yesterday? Use your hands... laughlaugh
