This grammar Bingo game is a fun way to support pupils in Y4 in their understanding of Standard English forms for verb inflections, rather than local spoken forms.

The game can be played as a class or in small groups and is perfect for adult led interventions to revisit key knowledge and skills.

This resource pack includes:

  • Bingo caller cards
  • 10 bingo cards
  • Teacher’s notes

What is Standard English?

Standard English can be recognised by the use of a very small range of forms such as those books, I did it, and I wasn’t doing anything (rather than their non-Standard equivalents); it is not limited to any particular accent. It is the variety of English which is used, with only minor variation, as a world language. Standard English is used in most writing and in formal speech.

Examples of Standard English

  • ‘we were’, instead of ‘we was’
  • ‘I did’ instead of ‘I done’.

What is a verb inflection?

Inflections are how verbs change when they are used. They may have different endings, or for some words, the spelling changes.

Examples of verb inflections

  • played, player, plays playing
  • blow, blows, blew, blown
  • was, were

National Curriculum English programme of study links
