Read the text in the pdf below and ask the children to spot the verbs. Can they tell which verbs are past tense and present tense? Make two lists of verbs - a group in the past tense, and a group in the present tense. What do you notice about these verbs? Can you spot a common spelling pattern at the end of the past tense verbs?

Many verbs use an -ed ending in the past tense. Sometimes this is just added on to the end of the root verb, like this:


Have a look at the following pictures and say sentences like the ones in the pdf - using the sentence pattern:

In the past...    








Choose a verb from the matrix below and change it into the past tense by adding 'ed'.

Can you write it down?



Here's a list of the 'rules' for adding -ed - we look mostly at the ones where there's no change in Year One, but this exercise also looks at those where you need to double the final letter.



Explain this using these words - can you see how the spelling pattern changes?



Now complete one of the sheets below by changing the verbs into the past tense using the -ed suffix. Can you write some really interesting sentences using these new words? 

Please don't forget to send us a copy or a photo of your work on Seesaw.

Today we are learning to identify and represent numbers using objects and pictorial representations.


Explain to children that we are going to count on and back in tens from zero. Use the 100 square below to help you. Start at a different number each time and ask children to count on in tens from that number.


Explain to children that we are going to compare numbers using the language of ‘more than’, ‘less than’ and ‘equal to’ alongside the inequality symbols.

Look at the below pictures and children to draw dienes (a line for a ten and a square for a one) for each number to represent the tens and the ones like the picture below:



Ask children which has more?




Introduce children to the inequality symbols:



From the pictures below, ask children to count the numbers and then use the symbols above to fill in the box. 





Use the 100 square to help you fill in the missing numbers from the below number lines. Then answer the questions for each one. 





Now choose a challenge from the worksheets below.
