Can you think of verbs ending in '-ing' to say in sentences about this picture?



Now write the verbs ending in '-ing' to go with these six pictures. Take care, as for some you just add the '-ing', but for others - with a short vowel sound, you need to double the final consonant and THEN add the '-ing'. (The answers are below.)





Today we are going to look at one of our SPaG objectives: To add the suffix -ing where no change is needed in the spelling of the root word e.g. helping, looking, eating

If possible, please watch the PowerPoint below as it reveals each word slowly and allows the children to give their answers. If you are unable to access PowerPoint, we have included a pdf version - you may just have to get a bit creative with sticky notes to reveal the answers!

As the objective suggests, the children in Year One only need to think about adding 'ing' to words where the spelling of the root word does not change. The PowerPoint also goes through two challenge levels: adding 'ing' to verbs ending in 'e' and adding 'ing' to verbs with a short vowel - we have included these pages as we know that some children who are 'super spellers' will be able to manage these additional challenge levels. Please stop at the level that you feel most appropriate for your child.

Now try this activity...


How many sentences with -ing words did you think of?


Now try to think of the 'ing' words to describe these actions and put them into a sentence... (For example: The chef is cooking lunch.)



Here are the answers smiley


Now try one of these sheets... and maybe have a go at the adding 'ing' game with a member of your family.


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

Recap the value of the coins that were introduced yesterday.

Show each coin and ask children to represent its value using Dienes.


Now let's consider these coins below:



Point to each coin and repeat the coin names.

Ask: What do you notice about the coins?

What is the same? What is different?

Responses should recap learning where children explored the physical properties of the coins.


Explain that as well as pence, we use pounds to pay for items. Show the symbols to represent pence and pounds (p and £). Match the values to the coins.  Point out how p, for pence, is written after the amount and £ is written before the amount.

Focus on the 20 pence, 50 pence and £1 coins.


Ask: How many penny coins have the same value as a 20 pence coin?

Explain that the 20 pence coin is equal to 20 penny coins. Count out 20 penny coins below. Show twenty using Dienes.



Ask: How many penny coins have the same value as a 50 pence coin?

Explain that the 50 pence coin is equal to 50 penny coins. Count out 50 penny coins below. Show fifty using Dienes.


Ask: How many penny coins have the same value as a one pound coin?

Explain that 100 penny coins have the same value as a one pound coin. Count out 100 penny coins below. Show 100 using Dienes


Ask: How many ten pence coins have the same value as a one pound coin?

Show children the below picture which shows that ten 1ps have been regrouped into one 10p.



Children say: 10 pence, 20 pence, 30 pence, 40 pence, 50 pence, 60 pence, 70 pence, 80 pence, 90 pence , 100 pence. 100 pence is equal to one pound. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. Ten 10 pence coins are equal to one pound.

Relate the ten pence coins to the groups of ten using Dienes.


Now look again at the coins below.


Ask: Which coin has the greatest value? How do you know?

Which coin has the least value? How do you know?

Which coin has a greater value, a 20 pence coin or a one pound coin? How do you know?

Which coin is worth less than the two pence coin?


Practical activity:

Select two coins from a pot, e.g. a fifty pence and a one pound coin or use the internet resource below.


Ask: Which coin would you rather have to spend?

Children must justify their answers explaining the value of each coin, e.g. ‘I would rather have a one pound coin. A one pound coin is worth 100 pence and a 50 pence coin is worth 50 pence. If I had a one pound coin I would have more money to spend.’ Encourage children to demonstrate their knowledge by exchanging coins for ten pence coins to show their value, e.g. count in tens and exchange the pound coins for 10 ten pence coins and the 50 pence coin for five ten pence coins.

This tool allows you to show how many 1ps each coin is made from.


Split the coins to show how many 1ps they are made of to help you decide which coin you would rather.


How do I split a coin? Press the coin you wish to split, then press the split button.


How do I remove a coin? Drag the coin to the bottom of the screen and it will be removed.


You could watch the below videos too to help you understand how to make the values of 10p and 20p.
