This KS2 English quiz takes a look at prepositions. Prepositions are linking words. Prepositions are very important words - they link words together in a way that makes sense. Prepositions come before a noun (or pronoun) to explain its relationship to other words in the sentence. In the sentence, 'I gave the medal to the best runner', the preposition 'to' explains the relationship between 'the runner' and 'the medal'. Prepositions often describe time (i.e. 'after' and 'before') and place (i.e. 'behind' and 'below').
You may not notice these little words in a sentence, but they do the key job of bringing a whole sentence together. If you read a sentence without any prepositions, you'll soon notice a difference!
