What did you do last weekend?

The simple past (also called past simple, past indefinite) is a verb tense which is used to show that a completed action took place at a specific time in the past. We use the simple past to express the idea that an action started and finished at a specific time in the past, here, the action of not enjoying the film. The simple past is formed using the verb + ed. In addition, there are many verbs with irregular past forms. Questions are made with 'did' and negative forms are made with 'did not'.
The film wasn't very good. I didn't enjoy it very much.
The bed was very uncomfortable. I ____________ sleep very well.
The bed was very uncomfortable. I didn't sleep very well.

In verb tenses "I received" is simple past
The simple past is used to describe actions and/or events that are now completed and no longer true in the present.
I received his letter yesterday.
