Learning the meaning of ‘where’

Why is this important?
Wh- questions are an integral part of everyday conversations and routines
(e.g. ‘Where’s your coat?’). Children need to be able to follow these
instructions to be able to respond appropriately to questions and to move
from a concrete to a more abstract level.

What to do
• Gather together some toys or objects and place them around the room.
• Encourage the child to find one item at a time by asking: ‘Where’s the …?’
• If the child can manage this, move on to the next item.
• If the child responds incorrectly (e.g. by naming the item retrieved rather than
where it is), repeat the question and give the answer, e.g.

Adult: ‘Where’s the ball?’
Child: ‘Ball.’
Adult: ‘Where’s the ball? On the table.’
• You could also try repeating the question and then start to

model a response for the child to complete, e.g.
Adult: ‘Where’s the ball? The ball’s on the …?’

  • Through our Christian school and ethos, we all aim to believe in ourselves, each other, our teachers, leaders and parents. With reflection and prayer, we trust in God that our prayers will be heard. We know that every child is a child of Jesus, treating everyone with respect and dignity that they deserve.

    Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.
    Matthew 7:7


  • We aim to build our pupils’ and teachers’ confidence, delight in their teaching & learning and discipline in seeking wisdom; gaining the truth, knowledge, understanding and skills they will need in their everyday lives. We offer a broad and inspiring curriculum that nurtures emotional intelligence, creativity and remembering of important knowledge. We teach and learn collaboratively leading to our pupils developing the life skills of learning.

    For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding;
    Proverbs 2:6


  • We aim to be the best we can be. Whilst nurturing our pupils’ and staff, we encourage and drive them to aspire to achieve their hopes and dreams. We are honest in the fact that this will take hard work, perseverance and resilience.

    For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
    Jeremiah 29:11


  • Above all we aim to show compassion to ourselves and each other. By developing strong relationships and friendships we develop a true understanding of each other.

    ‘Love thy neighbour…’
    Luke 10:28


  • We are a family. We show compassion for all members of our community irrespective of gender, ethnicity, religion or sexuality. We strive to be ‘courageous advocates’ for our local, national and global community.

    There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus.
    Galatians 3:28
