Prepositions 2

This Prepositions 2 quiz follows on from the Prepositions 1 Quiz. The National Curriculum states that Year 3 children in KS1 English and Literacy lessons should know prepositions, however, Year 1 and 2 will be using them in their writing. This quiz introduces them to the key words and what they mean.

A preposition is a word that tells us the position of something. A preposition will say that something, a person or animal is by, above or under something. There are many ways to describe where something is by using prepositions. Now test your knowledge on these words.
