This KS2 English quiz takes a first look at adverbs. Adverbs are words that change verbs, adjectives and other adverbs. Adverbs play several roles in English sentences. One of these is to modify (or change) the verb by making it more precise. For example, 'she stepped stealthily into the room' is not the same as 'she stepped suddenly into the room'. The adverbs, 'stealthily' and 'suddenly', alter the verb 'stepped' to create different effects.
Using adverbs can really improve your writing. As an example, using the adverb ‘angrily’ in this sentence - ‘He angrily kicked the ball’ - makes the reader want to read more to find out why he was angry.
