Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain


LO: To know how to use adverbs to describe animal actions.

Read to the end of the book.


Today we are going to generate adverbs to describe the actions of the animals in this picture from the story.

Make sure you have completed page 7 in your grammar book ‘adverbs’.



Adverbs describe verbs. They describe how the action is being done or has been done. Adverbs often end in ly.


Here are some examples:


The gazelle is galloping elegantly across the fresh, green grass.

In this sentence can you identify the noun, the verb and the adverb?


Noun – gazelle

Verb – galloping

Adverb – elegantly


Have a go now at making a list of verbs and adverbs in your workbook to use in your sentences. Look at the picture above and think about the actions the animals are doing and how they are doing them.


Here are some examples:


Verbs – galloping, running, eating, sitting, lying, flying, standing.

Adverbs - Happily, sneakily, gracefully, calmly, secretly, quickly, slowly.


Try to make your sentences interesting, you could also include adjectives to describe the animals.


E.g. The stripy zebra is slowly eating the tasty, green grass.

The adverb can come before or after the verb.


Try to write at least 4 sentences and make sure you include capital letters at the start of each sentence and for the names of people and places, full stops and finger spaces. Don’t forget to read your sentences back to check they make sense.
