SPAG activity ( Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar)
This is a stand alone activity which doesn't follow a sequence of learning
In year 1 children are required to know the past tense suffix 'ed' at the end of words.
We add 'ed' onto the end of verbs. Remember verbs are action words for example walk, climb,skip,race,jump,twirl,hop etc.
If the action happened in the past you add 'ed'
Think about what exercises you have been doing recently. Can you write a sentence and add 'ed' on the end of the verbs?
I jumped on my trampoline
I skipped on the pavement.
I climbed a tree and it was really high.

This week we are going to focus on VE Day - discuss with your grown ups. What do you already know about VE Day?
A nice idea is making a list of questions you want to find out. e.g
What is VE Day?
When is VE Day?
Who was involved in VE Day?
When did it happen?
Make a list of 5 questions and hopefully by the end of the week you will have answered them!
