Adverbs 1
The balloon popped noisily in my face! Do you know which word is the adverb?

Adverbs 1

This quiz is about identifying adverbs and it helps children understand what an adverb is used for. The National Curriculum states that Year 2 pupils at KS1 level should know this terminology. Using adverbs will increase their knowledge of the English language and literacy.

A verb is a word that involves action and an adverb is how the action is happening. ‘She sang loudly’ - the verb is ‘sang’ and how she is singing is ‘loudly,’ which is the adverb.
