Peter was ten years old and he went to the City School. He was very at football, so he was in his school team. He always played very and in practice games and in matches, and he scored plenty of goals.
Peter's grandfather and grandmother usually came to see him when there was a match, and they were always when other people said, "Your grandson plays very , doesn't he?"
Then one day Peter said to his grandmother, "We're practis­ing for our match next Saturday. Our school's going to play against the Garden School. They have the team in our city, so perhaps they'll beat us. Can you come and see the match?"
"Oh, yes," his grandmother answered, "your grandfather and I will be there - and I'm certain that you'll beat the Garden School."
"Well, I hope we will," Peter answered.
The match was in the park, and it began at half past two on Saturday. The Garden School team wore orange shirts, blue shorts and orange socks, and Peter's team wore blue and white shirts, white shorts and blue socks.
In the first two minutes of the match, the Garden School boys came very to the City School's goal, but then the goal­keeper kicked the ball to Peter in the middle of the field, and Peter ran with it and kicked it into the goal. All the City School boys as well as their families were very to see it.
After he had scored once, Peter scored twice again before half time. Then in the second half of the match he scored another goal, but he touched the ball with his foot, and the goalkeeper caught it and threw it out again.
After the match, Peter's grandfather said to him, "You missed a chance to score a fourth goal then, Peter. If you'd kicked the ball , you'd have got a goal . Why did you kick it ?"
"Because in the goalkeeper's eyes," Peter answered.

Usually adverbs are formed from adjectives by adding -ly, sometimes with other changes too (e.g. beautiful, beautifully; easy, easily). But some adverbs do not add -ly.
Look at this list of some common adverbs without -ly
better/best, early, fast, less/least, low, more, well, worse/worst.

Notice the following pairs of adverbs:

hard (= in a hard way), hardly (.= almost not at all)
late (= after the right time), lately (= not long ago; recently);
most (= more than the others), mostly (= most times)
near (= in such a way as to get close to), nearly (= almost)
as usual (= in the same way as he/she/it usually does), usually (= most times)

Rewrite the words adding -ly in the correct places below, but only where it is needed:

Peter runs very fast . He near always comes first in races. His brother Philip is not like Peter. He most used to come last , but late he has been doing better , because he has been trying very hard . In the last race, he finished very near his brother.
