20.05.20

English

There are different spelling rules when adding a suffix to words. Today we will be using the suffix -ing.

 

If I added the suffix -ing to jump, I can add -ing without any changes = jumping

If I added the suffix -ing to skip, I double the last consonant and then add -ing = skipping

If I added the suffix -ing to make, I drop the 'e' and add -ing = making

 

Create a table in your home learning book (a column for each rule) and sort these words into the correct spelling pattern when -ing is added.

swim

hit

bake

shake

sing

drift 

bounce

jog

 

Challenge- Think of your own verbs, add -ing and sort them into your table.

Today we will be continuing with learning to subtract a two digit number from another two digit number. Today we will be regrouping, which is a little bit trickier! You will need some tens and ones to move about. You could make your own tens and ones out of card or cardboard (an old cereal box will do). Alternatively, you could also represent your tens and ones with 10p and 1p coins, cheerios/beads threaded onto string or pipe cleaners or bundles of straws! Tweet how you represent your tens and ones! We can't wait to see!

 

Look out for the video which we will send via class dojo to show you the method!
