SPaG WALT: use the past tense suffix -ed

Can you write the past tense for jump and wave?


Hopefully you used the 2 rules from last week...

Rule 1: add –ed (jump + ed)
Rule 2: if it ends in an e just add –d (wave + d)



Guess What...
There are 2 more rules!


 Rule 3: Double Consonant ?Rule

When a short word has a short vowel and it ends with one consonant we double the last consonant and add (ed).

The short vowel needs more friends.
stop    stopped
drop    dropped
fan      fanned


Rule 4: verbs that end in y change the y to an i and add -ed.

try          tried
cry         cried

Remember to watch out for the  irregular verbs!

You can use any of those methods to divide but there is a simple trick you can use too!

For example 30 ÷ 10 =



The number becomes 10 times smaller. You just take off the zero!

WALT: Identify hot and cold areas of the world


Do you know the difference between the weather and the climate?

Today we will be learning about the different climate zones of the world and how some places are hotter than others.


Places that are closer to the equator are usually hotter because they are closest to the sun.


Places that are further away from the equator as coldest because they are further away from the sun.
