One of my favourite books is Winnie the Witch by Valerie Thomas, she has many adventures and likes talking about them.

 

Click on the link below to hear the story, it has a lot of past tense verbs. See if you can spot them, perhaps shout them out when you hear them or write them down. Test your knowledge on how many you have spotted.
