Today we are going to be naming left and right positions. Do you know your which is your left and right hand? Hold your hands up and make an L shape, this tells us it is our left hand. Look at the poster below to help you. 

If we start from the left, who is in first place?


That's right it is the giraffe.  If the giraffe is in first place, then who is next and how do you describe that position?


The monkey is second place from the left. The monkey is after the giraffe.


Which position the giraffe is in if we go from right to left?


Yes that is right the giraffe is last. The giraffe is in fifth place. 

Using 'between' and 'next to' can you describe the animals' positions?
