Teach Primary: Adverb Assault Course

~ 19th April 2020 ~

This month’s Teach Primary magazine features one of my English lesson plans focusing on verbs and adverbs.

This fun and effective lesson gets children active whilst embedding grammatical knowledge. With most children currently at home due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, this could also be a great activity to complete in the back garden. If you are a teacher still in school, perhaps this is a lesson you could do with the children of key-workers currently in your care.

  • Begin to use fronted adverbials
  • Add -ing and -ed suffixes correctly
  • Find synonyms and up-level vocabulary
