Adverbs help you to add detail in a sentence – click here

They often, but not always, end in ‘ly’. They add information to the verb (so they add to the verb) and remember that the verb is the action word.

Example:

shout (verb) loudly (adverb)

write (verb) carefully or neatly (adverbs)

jump (verb) athletically or high (adverbs)

Adverbs can open a sentence but must have a comma afterwards – they are called fronted adverbials. Adverbs can also come before or after the verb in the sentence but make sure they sound right.

Athletically, the Stone Age man chased the woolly mammoth.

The Stone Age man athletically chased the woolly mammoth.

The Stone Age man chased athletically the woolly mammoth. This doesn’t sound right does it?

Have a go at writing your own sentences that use adverbs. You could use the pictures below to help with your ideas. Adverbs are often used in stories or diaries so maybe that could be the style of your writing?

This coding puzzle links to Minecraft and should take around one hour. Make sure you watch the video and read the on-screen instructions carefully (adverb after the verb which sounds right). Good luck!
