Y6 Grammar Punctuation and Spelling

Identifying Verbs in Sentences Lesson

This lesson covers the prior learning of identifying nouns and verbs before moving onto the main skill of identifying verbs in sentences.

The lesson starts with a prior learning activity to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for that step. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning with engaging reasoning and application tasks.

National Curriculum Objective:

English Year 6: (6G4.4) Using passive verbs to affect the presentation of information in a sentence

English Year 6: (6G4.4) Use of the passive to affect the presentation of information in a sentence [for example, I broke the window in the greenhouse versus The window in the greenhouse was broken (by me)]
