LQ: How do I find related number facts? 

Today we are going to find addition and subtraction 'fact families' for numbers within 20. Use the pictures, part-whole models and bar models to help you find all of the addition and subtraction number sentences.

We spent lots of time finding fact families for numbers within 10 before Christmas, so hopefully you will be experts at this by now! 

Year 2 Maths 

Today we will be  counting in equal groups and using equal groups to find a total.

We can link this to real life, for example animal legs, wheels, flowers in a vase etc. 

What equipment can we use to represent a pattern? Whats the same/different?


Which is more... 3 groups of 10 or 4 groups of 5? 

Can you prove it using your own objects?


LQ: How well can I write a story ending? 

In this lesson, we will write the ending of the 'Magic Paintbrush' story, focusing particularly on the mood created.

LQ: What is an irregular plural?


Phonics Play: Read and write a sentence from Phase 5D.

Recap on yesterday’s words: What do you do to nouns ending in f and e to make them plural? 




Teach:  Some nouns change completely when they become plural. Show the word tooth. Ask children how we would say two of them? Show the word teeth. Explain that there are some words that are the same whether it is singular or plural. Look at sheep.



Can the you write the plural for the following words?

tooth, man, person, foot, mouse, police, child, sheep, deer

men, people, , mice,  feet, police, children, sheep, deer

Match the words with the plural nouns.


Write the words and their plurals.


Apply: Create sentences which include plural irregular nouns.
