Today we will be continuing to revise superlatives and comparatives by adding the suffixes -er and -est to the end of words.


When we add -er and -est for this group of words, we have to drop the 'e' on the end of the word first and then add -er or -est.


Complete the missing words by adding -er and -est using the example as a guide. Can you draw pictures for each word underneath so that is clear how the suffixes -er and -est have changed the meaning of the word?



Today we are going to continue learning how to use imperative or 'bossy' verbs and you will see how important they are when giving clear instructions.


Yesterday, you made vanilla cupcakes by following a written recipe. This time, you are going to follow the recipe to make banana flapjacks below! The only difference this time is that you are going to listen to the recipe being read to you by somebody else and you are not reading this recipe yourself.


You will need to listen carefully to the order of the instructions and the bossy verbs that are used. If you need to ask questions to the person who is reading the instructions to you, you may. For example, if it says 'stir the mixture' you might ask them 'do I stir it quickly or slowly?'. HOW you carry out an imperative or 'bossy' verb is called an adverb and they are very important in recipes too. Imagine what might happen if you poured a mixture into a bowl quickly instead of carefully!


Make short notes on how to make the flapjacks as you go along.


Problem of the Day: Can you solve it? Send us your answer on Seesaw please.


Today we are learning to subtract 1 digit numbers within 20. Children will be building on the language of subtraction, recognising and using the subtraction symbol within 20. They will revisit use of zero so children know that when nothing is taken away the start number remains the same. They will also use the part whole model alongside practical equipment to reinforce numbers bonds within 20.


Use the following 'first' and 'then' sentences and pictures below to help to introduce the subtraction equations as a story. We cross out the amount that has been subtracted. Can you solve the subtraction equations and fill in the gaps?




If Finn ate nothing, what number would we use to represent this? How do we write this as a calculation?

If Finn ate all of the biscuits what number would we be left with? How do we write this as a calculation?

What does the zero represent in this calculation? What does it represent in the other calculation?




Instead of using pictures, we are now going to represent the equation using counters and a ten frame. We still say 'first' and 'then' sentences and cross out (or remove in real life) the amount that is subtracted. Can you solve the subtraction equations?





We can also solve equations using Numicon or a number line. Have a go at solving the equations below. Remember to say your 'first' and 'then' subtraction story aloud!
