This English and Literacy quiz is our second on Irregular Past Tense. This quiz helps children in KS1 identify the change in certain verbs when writing them in the past tense. This quiz will also help children achieve the National Curriculum's requirement of writing within a specific tense. There are many irregular past tense words and it’s important for children to learn these ‘oddities’, as it will add to their growing literacy and English knowledge.
Sometimes, to show a verb happened in the past, we can just add ‘ed’ to that word. However, there are some verbs that when moved from the present to past tense, change completely. These are called irregular past tense words.
