Y3 Grammar Punctuation and Spelling

Recognising and Using Present Perfect Form in Sentences Lesson

This Year 3 lesson covers the prior learning of simple past and present tense before moving onto the main skill of the Present Perfect Form.

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.
