English – verbs

Monday 13 March 2023

This week in Year 2 we are learning about verbs. Our school defines a verb as ‘a doing or a being word’.  Today, Year 2 went out onto the playground for a lesson about verbs. We imagined that we were getting up on a morning and getting ready for school. This involved acting out lots and lots of verbs. We slept, we yawned, we stretched and then we brushed our teeth!


The children loved doing their learning on the playground and said that it would help them to remember what type of word class a verb is.


When we returned to the classroom, we recapped some of the verbs we had learnt. We also wrote some of the verbs in the past and present tense.

Help at home by discussing verbs as you do tasks at home.
