On Thursday, we are learning/ revising how to write in the past tense. In the documents you will find one word document with all of the colour levels. If doing blue, your child should choose words from the blue list and write the past tense verb for the present tense verb that is given. If doing green or white, then they should choose verbs from the appropriate colour list, write the past tense version of the verb, then use it in a past tense sentence.  

Also, in the documents are some past tense verb reference sheets that your child might find useful – especially if doing white.

Blue activity **two starred activity sheet. The children will need to complete the statement by filling in the missing numbers that the array is representing.
