The Castle Mystery Tour.

How do we form it?

The same form is used for all persons and It is formed in regular verbs by adding -ed to the infinitive:

I worked

 you worked

he  worked

she worked

we  worked

you  worked

they  worked

When the verb ends in e adds only -d

love, loved

The negative of regular and irregular verbs is formed with did not and the infinitive without to:

I did not work

you did not work

he did not work

she did not work

we  did not work

you  did not work

they  did not work

The interrogative of regular and irregular verbs is formed with did + subject + infinitive without to:

Did I work?  did you work?....

Verbs ending in y following a consonant change the y in i before adding ed:

study, studied, but obey, obeyed (y following a vowel doesn't change)

Irregular verbs

They usually have a different form in the simple past form:

Infinitive:         to bring    to eat     to see     to speak

Simple past: brought       ate       saw          spoke

Once these irregular verbs have been learnt there is no other difficulty, as irregular verbs like regular verbs have no inflexions in the past tense.
