Listen to ‘The Magic Box’ by Kit Wright. To watch click here.

  • Activity: What else would you put in your magic box? Write/draw/collect 3 new items that you would put in your magic box and add the next verse to 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.

In my magic box I will put,

A sip of sugary lemonade on a sweaty summers’ day,

Some crisp, crunchy Autumn leaves rustling underfoot,

Seven singing sopranos.

In my magic box I will put,

A drop of every shade of every colour to create the most spectacular rainbow,

A 5th season called Sautumner where the leaves are multicoloured yet the sweaty sunshine is scorching hot,

The softness of all the clouds in the sky.

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 rotating shapes. You will need a pen and paper/book to complete this lesson.

Fun extras – Find different shapes around your house to draw around and cut out. Try rotating them in different ways. Don’t forget to put a dot in one of the corners to make seeing the rotation easier. You could play the same game as yesterday. Close your eyes and get a grown up to rotate the shape. Open your eyes and guess what type of rotation they did. Swap over.

Pretend you are at Edgmond Hall or at your favourite holiday destination. Write a postcard to a friend or family member telling them about your trip.

Here are some activities you might have done at Edgmond Hall:

  • Playing with your friends (what games would you have played?)
  • Singing around the campfire (what songs would you have sung?)
  • Pond dipping (what animals do you think you’d have found?)
  • Feeding the goats (what might it have felt like? It always tickles my hand when the goats eat the hay)
  • Collecting the eggs from the hens (how many do you think they would have laid?)
  • Going to the shop (would you have bought a toy or a pencil? A bug finding kit or a bouncy ball?)

Don’t forget to write their address so the postman knows where to send it. And maybe you could design your own stamp.
