Grammar Tasks - 3 Tenses
HOME LEARNING - SUMMER TERM WEEK 7
THE THREE MAIN TENSES
Grammar skills are often better taught in small bitesize chunks and then revisited a few days or weeks later to review and practice.
This week's grammar tasks all centre on the THREE MAIN TENSES - PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE
- PAST TENSE - The past tense refers to event that have happened in the past. The basic way to form the past tense in English is to take the present tense of the word and add the suffix -ed. For example, to turn the verb "walk" into the past tense, add -ed to form "walked."
- PRESENT TENSE - Present tense is a grammatical term used for verbs that describe action happening right now. An example of present tense is the verb in the sentence "I eat."
- FUTURE TENSE - The simple future tense is used when an action is promised/thought to occur in the future. Example: We shall move to another city. He will come to New York tomorrow.
