LQ: How well can we use our number bonds to help us add?
Today we are using ten frames to make ten first when we add.
Year 2 Maths
This week, we are continuing with our topic of money. We will be looking at making amounts, comparing, finding the total/difference and finding change.
Today we will be using our addition/subtraction skills to find the difference.
Depending on the question, you can count on or back to help you answer the questions.
Can you look at different amounts of coins?
What's the difference? How much less/How many fewer?
What methods work best for you to use when finding the difference?
In this lesson, we will learn how to write in the past tense and will begin to apply this to our story, 'The Magic Paintbrush'.

Year 2 Phonics
Read and practise writing two Phase 5C sentences from Phonics Play.
Recap on what a verb is, what a suffix is and what we have learnt this week so far.
Add ing and ed to these words:
play, close, party
Look at the new verbs together.
clap, hop, skip, snap
What happens to these words when we add ing or ed?
When there is a short vowel before a consonant, we double the consonant.
Recap on the 5 vowels (a, e, i, o, u). The children will draw around their hand and write a vowel in each digit. Then explain what we mean by short vowel sounds. (the a in cap, the e in peg, the i in pin, the o in hop, the u, bug). Explain that all words need a vowel sound for us to read them. (N.B:The letter y, sometimes makes a vowel sound in words. )
The children will double the consonant before adding the suffixes to the above words. Can they think of any more words. Make a list.
NB: Some of the words may have irregular past tense forms. (sitting, sat)
Write some sentences in the present and past tense.
