Every action that was completely done is considered a past action. The statement “You went to school yesterday.”, is written or spoken in past tense because it no longer exists. It is obvious that yesterday completely ended when today came. In short, whatever finished in the past must be expressed in past tense. It is just that past tense itself is divided into different situations which we have to take notice of in order that we convey correct information to our listeners or readers.
