Today we are going to learn about the past tense. The past tense is a way of writing a verb to show that something has happened already.

Write the long date in your pink English books and underline it with a ruler. Monday 18th January.

Read the 'silver' sentences below that are in the present tense. Now write them again but using the past tense.

Choose your level of challenge. If you are finding the work difficult, choose the 'bronze' activity and cut out and match the sentences. If you would like a challenge, choose the 'gold' activity and write the sentences in the past tense.
