Our Year 6 SPaG Revision Blaster packs are the perfect way to check children’s knowledge and understanding of the KS2 programme of study for English. The area of grammar, punctuation and spelling covered in this SPaG revision blaster is adverbials.

The packs are based around the content domains of the Key Stage 2 grammar, punctuation and spelling test framework. ‘Let’s Recap!’ provides information to revise or reteach an area of grammar, punctuation or spelling covered in Paper 1 of the GPS test followed by ‘Let’s Practise!’ with SATs style questions for the pupils to complete independently or as a class. Three sheets are provided, Revision Blaster 1, 2 and 3. These increase in difficulty, with questions having a greater cognitive load on Revision Blaster 3.

A PowerPoint version of the pack is included, so it can be worked through in groups, or as a whole class.

This primary resource pack includes:

  • Let’s Recap PDF and PPT slides
  • Let’s Practise worksheet: adverbials
  • Let’s Practise answers
  • Let’s Recap PDF sheet

What are adverbials?

An adverbial is an adverb, phrase or clause that is used to modify a verb or clause. Prepositional phrases and subordinate clauses are also types of adverbials. They show when, how, how often or how long, to what extent, where or why an action is occurring.

The bus will arrive in ten minutes.
The prepositional phrase is used as an adverbial as it modifies the verb arrive.

He walked until he reached the bridge.
The subordinating clause is used as an adverbial as it modifies the verb walked.

Fortunately, he had remembered his homework.
The adverb is used as an adverbial as it modifies the whole clause by commenting. This is a fronted adverbial as it comes at the beginning of the sentence. A comma must be used after the fronted adverbial.
