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.
