In today’s Phonics lesson we are revising past and present tense. Remember that if we are writing about something that has happened, we would be writing in the past tense. Likewise, if we are writing about something happening now, we would be writing in the present tense.


For example, I painted a beautiful picture.

I am painting a beautiful picture.


It is really important that when we write we are using the correct tense.

I would like you to go onto BBC Bitesize’s website and watch the video on tenses and have a go at the quiz


I would then like you to write a sentence in the past tense and a sentence in the present tense to describe the pictures below. Remember to start your sentences with a capital letter, leave finger spaces between your words, include adjectives, use the correct tense and end your sentences with a piece of punctuation.
