Comparing numbers

Please connect to Google Classrooms for a 15 minute Meet to talk you through your learning today.

We have been able to compare numbers from 0 to 10 in class before to find which is the greatest number and which is the least. Today we will be looking at comparing numbers up to 100!

The first thing to look for when we are comparing larger number is the number of tens.

47 has four tens and 62 has six tens. As six tens is greater than 4 tens, 62 is greater than 47. 47 is less than 62.

When we compare numbers that have the same number of tens, we then need to look next at the ones. 57 and 54 both have five tens. 57 has more ones than 54 so 57 is greater than 54. 54 is less than 57.

Past tense verbs

Please connect to Google Classrooms for a 15 minute Meet to talk you through your learning today.

Can you remember what a verb is?

A verb is a word that tells us what is happening or what someone is doing (think of our yellow cards!).

When we talk about things we have done in the past, we need to add a suffix to the end of the verb. The suffix to show something has happened in the past, we use the suffix "-ed."


I play catch on playground. I did the same yesterday.

So I played catch on the playground.


The suffix "-ed" shows that the playing happened in the past.


Here are some more examples:

  • mix - mixed
  • roll - rolled
  • dress - dressed
  • heat - heated


You'll notice that the "-ed" suffix is sneaky and makes different sounds. It can sound like:

  • t
  • d
  • id

You may need to try a different sound when you read the "-ed" suffix to check it make sense.


Task 1:

Use the verb provided to complete each sentence in the past tense.


  • pick
    • Leo _________ up his toys.
  • play
    • Kaiden _________ in the sand.
  • need
    • Isabella _________ a drink.
  • wait
    • Mum _________ for the bus.


Task 2:

Can you think of your own past tense sentences for the following verbs? You can use the picture prompts to help you.

What is a settlement?

Please connect to Google Classrooms for a 15 minute Meet to talk you through your learning today.

I'm thinking about where the wild things might be and so I need to know and use some geographical knowledge to help me. Today we will be learning about where people (or wild things) may live.

  • A few hundred or a few thousand people live in a village.
  • There may be a post office, a small shop, a school and a place of worship.
  • Often in the countryside.


  • A few thousand to tens of thousand of people live in a town.
  • There will be large supermarkets and shopping centres.
  • There will be different primary and secondary schools.
  • You may find a train station and a hospital.


  • Hundreds of thousand or even millions of people live in a city.
  • You will find hospitals, universities, hotels, sports stadiums, large shopping centres, and different places of worship.
  • Different train stations and it's own internal transport system (tramways/underground trains).


Task 1:

Answer the following questions:

  1. Which settlement has the least population?
  2. Where would you expect to find a hospital?
  3. Why do cities have more than one train station?


Task 2:

Think of our local area. What settlement do you live in?

Do you know the name of a village, town and city you have visited? Talk about how they are different.

Mark making

Follow this link to a video lesson from The Oak National Academy for an introduction to drawing techniques.

An introduction to drawing

In this lesson, we will think about what it means to be 'good' at drawing. We will experiment with mark making in our sketch book and use a variety of media; pencils, crayons, pastels, felt tips and chalk to begin to explore the different outcomes these tools create.
