We are looking at the suffix ‘ed’ today. A suffix is a group of letters added to the end of a word that change the meaning of that word. An ‘ed’ suffix is added to the end of a word to make it past tense and show that it has already happened. For example, walk becomes walked. Use these slides to talk about different words that might have an ‘ed’ suffix. There are some activities on the slides that you could have a go at on paper.

English – Thurs 26th March ‘ed’


Today we are looking at finding one more or one less than a number from 0-50. Have a go at finding more that 20 of a group of objects. Here I have 24 buttons:

If I put another button in my pile, how many would there be? I could count them using 2’s, 5’s or 10’s or I could use a number line or 100 square to find one more. You can find a 100 square in the general resources pack in the ‘helpful reminders’ section of this post.

If I took a button away from the pile of 24, how many would there be? Again, I could count them or I could use a number line or hundred’s square to find one more.

See if you can tell someone at home about what you have done using the sentences:

‘One more than 24 is ___’

‘One less than 24 is ___’

Now have a go at the cars. I have 35 cars here:

What is one more? What is one less?

‘One more than 35 is ___’

‘One less than 35 is ___’

Here is today’s maths activity sheet for you to have a go at if you would like to continue your learning: Maths – Thurs 26th March


Computing: Today we are thinking about following a path. If you have access to an iPad or iPhone then you could download the BeeBot app which is currently free at:

Remind yourself of the buttons and how they work using this picture. Then go to the in the garden section and help Bee-Bot pollinate the flowers.

If you aren’t able to download the app, please don’t worry. You could try to create a path in your house or garden using objects or chalk to mark it out and then try to think about using words left right forward or back to follow a path. You could use another toy to represent the BeeBot. For example:








Music: This activity requires you to be able to play an MP3 sound clip – please don’t worry if you are not able to do this on your computer. As we are learning about transport this term, use the audio clip provided to practise our song ‘We all go travelling by’. Click Here:

Here are the lyrics:
