Today we are going to concentrate on imperative verbs. These are sometimes called 'bossy' verbs because they are used in a command like

put on your jumper.


Let's watch a video to find out a little bit more. Click on the picture below.


Look at the example of a set of instructions below. The imperative verbs are at the beginning of the sentences. 

Here are a few from this picture:

  • fill
  • fit
  • ask
  • put
  • add
Well done if you also spotted a few time adverbials in there like then and the next day. These are used to show you the sequence (just like the numbered steps.)


Now it's your turn. Look at the example of instructions below, pick out the imperative verbs and write them in a list on the 2Do on Purple Mash.
