Y3 Grammar Punctuation and Spelling

Past and Present 2

This Year 3 Past and Present Tense 2 lesson covers the prior learning of recognising the past and present progressive tense before moving onto the main skill of using the past and present progressive tense.

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.
