Adverbs 2
The fish swam frantically away from danger. Which word is the adverb?

Adverbs 2

This quiz teaches children about adverbs and it leads on from the Adverbs 1 quiz. The National Curriculum asks that KS1 children know what an adverb is and this task builds on that requirement making sure they add the appropriate word. This will enhance their Literacy and English language skills.

An adverb is a word that describes action. It’s important we include adverbs in our writing but we need to make sure we pick the correct adverb for the verb.
