This week we are looking at understanding present perfect form of verbs.



Ask the children: "What is the present perfect form of verbs?"

  • The present perfect form is used to say that an action at some point in the past, but when is not specified. This is done by using 'have' or 'has' as part of the verb. 

Work through the two perfect verb PowerPoints. 


Show children these sentences - children have to fill in the have or has.

Sarah _______ lost her keys.

I ________ been in London since Tuesday.

They _________ eaten all of the icecream.

You _________ always loved sunflowers.

Discuss what is happening to these sentences. None of them are specific about time.



Re-cap what the present perfect form of a verb is. Discuss that specific time expressions are not used in present perfect verb sentences eg. Today or last week. Instead general time expressions are used, for example, always, never, since, still, already. 

Children to write 'always' and 'never' sentences about themselves. 



See if you can create your own present perfect sentences, ask the following questions:

"Have you been to a shop since the weekend?"

"Have you ever visited a theme park?"

"Have you always lived in this area?"

Children are to answer the questions in full using the present perfect tense. 



Today we are going to review our learning of adding the suffix 'er' and 'est' to words. 

Do you remember the spelling rule for adding 'er' and 'est' to words?

Work through the PowerPoint.



Complete your spelling tests.
