This week, our grammar focus will be on verbs. There are many different rules and conventions linked to verbs so we will be focusing on this for a number of weeks. This week, we are looking at verbs and what happens to them in the past tense. Regular verbs will add the suffix -ed to convert the verb to the simple past tense. Some examples of these are:
Walk – walked
Kick – kicked
Knock – Knocked.
We would like the children to write ten verbs that add -ed to make them past tense.
Some verbs have different past tense endings and conventions. Some examples are:
Run – ran
Think – thought
Dig – dug.
We would like the children to find ten verbs that have irregular past tense endings.
We would then like the children to choose three of their irregular verbs and write a sentence using them in context.
