Year 2 have been learning how to change verbs into the past tense.
They have learnt the following rules:
- Add ed to the verb – look – looked
- Add d to verbs ending in e – like – liked
- Verbs containing a short vowel sound with one consonant sound at the end, the consonant is doubled then ed is added – chat – chatted
- Verbs ending in y which make the ee or the igh sound, changed the y to an i and then add ed – hurry – hurried and try – tried
The children have a rhyme to help them with the last rule:
‘Bye bye y, I’m adding an i’.
