Verbs - Present Tense
This quiz focusses on present tense and helps children recognise verbs that are written in the present tense. This quiz is designed to aid the National Curriculum's requirement that Year 2 children at the KS1 level continuously write in one tense. When writing and reading stories, knowing the tense will improve children’s command of literacy and the English language.
A verb is a doing word and when written in the present tense, they tell us what is happening now. If I say ‘The owl lives in the tree,’ the verb is ‘lives’ and that means he still lives there.
