  • Activity: What would you put in your magic box? Write/draw/collect 3 items that you would put in your magic box and begin your magic box poem.


In my magic box I will put,

A crumbling, crunching corner of the richest chocolate in town,

The chatter of a monkey as it swings through the treetops above my head,

The thick, gloopy mud that gets your wellies stuck.

White Rose Maths have stopped their free online worksheets. You can still access the videos for free. If you would like to carry on with those, click here.

Alternatively, The Oak National Academy are providing free online learning videos, quizzes and activities. I have chosen lessons which cover aspects of the Year 2 curriculum we know the children need to recap. Click here to take you to the lesson on using the language of rotation. You will need a pen and paper/book to complete this lesson.

Fun extras – write out the different turns on pieces of paper. Using a teddy pick up a piece of paper and complete the turn using your teddy. Ask a grown up to check.

Whilst at Edgmond Hall you would have eaten lots of lovely homemade meals. Here is a menu for the three days you would have been there:

Lunch – Jacket potatoes, beans and cheese
Dinner – Lasagne with salad and garlic bread

Lunch – Sandwiches, crisps and a piece of fruit
Dinner – Vegetable curry with rice and naan bread

Lunch – Tuna pasta bake
Dinner – Fish fingers, chips and peas

Either choose a day, or do all three if you would like, and make a shopping list for the cooks. Write a sentence using commas in a list for each meal.

E.g. For lunch you will need 40 jacket potatoes, 20 cans of baked beans and 3 blocks of mature cheddar cheese.

Topic – Science

Plan a balanced lunch based on the following criteria:

  • Your lunch must include a sandwich,
  • Your lunch must include at least one carbohydrate, one dairy product, one portion of fruit, one portion of vegetables and one source of meat/protein.
  • Your lunch can include one product that contains fat/oil/sugar (eg chocolate bar)


My healthy lunch would be a sandwich made from bread (carbohydrate), cucumber (fruit), lettuce (vegetable), tomatoes (fruit) and ham (meat/protein). I will also have a yoghurt (dairy), an apple (fruit) and a packet of salt and vinegar crisps (fat/oil/sugar) to go with it.

You could either draw/write out your list of ingredients and the equipment you will need to make it and then write a set of instructions for your grown ups to follow. If they can, they could make this healthy lunch for you in the days to come so you must make sure your instructions are clear.
