Maths - Where is the bear?

For this activity you will need a bear. Use the bear to demonstrate what the special words “On top, underneath, next to, behind, in front” mean.


Tell your child that you are going to put the bear in different positions around the house and your child needs to tell you where the bear is using the special words above.


Challenge your child to speak in full sentences by beginning with the words “The bear is….”


Once your child has completed this challenge tell them that you are going to say a sentence with the special words, and they are going to follow their instructions and place the bear in the right place.


Where will your bear hide today?
