Verbs - Future Tense

This quiz helps KS1 children recognise time stamps, and that ‘will’ and ‘going to’ signify verbs in the future tense. The National Curriculum asks that Year 2 children write consistently in a particular tense. This activity will also aid oral skills for Year 1 and 2, in addition to improving children’s literacy and English language.

Most stories you read are written in the past tense. Sometimes, we speak in the future tense by saying ‘I will help you’. This means I will do it, I’m not doing it now and I haven’t done it yet. We can also say, 'I will do it tomorrow' using the word 'tomorrow' as a time stamp.
