Transcript In Front of, Behind and Next to
Nia and Nico are playing hide and seek at the playground. Nia counts first whilst Nico hides! But, she needs help finding him. To help her, let's learn all about the position words ‘In Front of, Behind, and Next to’ so we can tell Nia where Nico is hiding! We use special words to describe the location of something. We call this positional language. The special words help us to know where someone, or something, is. There are many words we can use to describe position, but today we will learn about three! One phrase we'll learn about is, 'in front of' which means 'ahead of something.' We can use the words in front of' to describe where the trainers are compared to the bench. The trainers are in front of the bench because they are just ahead of it. Behind is another position word which means "at the back of something" or "just hidden by something". We can use the word behind to describe where the trainers are compared to the bench. The trainers are behind the bench because they are at the back of it and a little bit hidden by the bench. Next to' is the last phrase we will learn today which means being beside something. We can use the phrase next to' to describe where the trainers are compared to the bench. The trainers are ‘next to' the bench because they are beside it. Using these types of words can be really helpful because they help us understand or describe where something is! Let's practise using these new words to help tell Nia where Nico is hiding! Can you spot Nico's first hiding place? The swing! Is he 'in front of', behind or 'next to' it? Nico is at the back of the swing and is a little bit hidden by it so, Nico is ‘behind’ the swing! Nia counts once more as Nico hides again! There's Nico by the sand pit! Is he 'in front of', behind or 'next to' it? Nico is just ahead of the sand pit so, Nico is 'in front of' it. Nia counts one last time as Nico finds in his final hiding spot. Look carefully is Nico 'in front of', behind or 'next to' the slide? Nico is beside it so, Nico is ‘next to’' the slide. Now it's time for them to switch places! Whilst Nico counts and Nia hides, let's remember. Today we learnt about positional language and the words: 'in front of', behind, and 'next to'. They are used to describe where something is when compared to something else. In front of’ means 'ahead of something.' behind means "at the back of something" or "just hidden by something". Next to' means beside something. "Ready or not! Here I come!" "Nia, where are you?!" "Silly Nico! I'm right behind you!"
