This week's English is about a poem, called "The Magic Box," written by Kit Wright. All you have to do is follow the instructions on the Magic Box lesson plans.
The focus of our maths lessons this week has been using addition and subtraction effectively, using a range of strategies, including numberlines. Below, you will find the lessons for you to complete, together with the extra maths resources that you may like to use. Don't worry if you don't have a printer, as you can always write the answers down on paper, and can cut out your own set of digit cards, too.
Can you create your own Magic Box? Find any recycled box, or recycled container with a lid and then get creating!
You could cover it with paper, stick shapes on it, paint it, add jewels… just let your creative imagination run wild.
Remember, we’d love to see your finished boxes, so do send a photo in:
What material would be the best to protect your Magic box, if you were to accidentally drop it?
Oh no! You don’t want it to get damaged!
Using any materials you may have at home e.g. newspaper, wrapping paper, packing paper, tissue paper, bubble wrap, can you create a safe way to transport your box?
Make sure you send in a photo of your finished Magic Box protector.
Have some fun with this week's music lesson. All you have to do is open the PowerPoint below and follow the steps shown...
How good are you at guiding someone else, or following instructions when you are blindfolded?
Work with a partner – it could be any member of your family – and decide if you are going to give the instructions, or try to follow them.
If you are following the instructions, you must wear a blindfold. Your partner is going to try to guide you around your garden, or your outdoor space – or you could do it at the park! Your partner could make it even harder, by putting obstacles in your way and making you avoid them!
Make sure you swap over, so you can have a go at both roles – giving and following the instructions.
This might give you an idea about how difficult it is for people who do not have their sight and what an amazing job a Guide Dog does.
