This week's creative challenge! Magic boxes!

Calling all magicians, wizards, witches and sorcerers!  Your creative challenge this week is to create your own magical box and decide what you would put inside it!  You can make your box and decorate it or you can draw it.  You can put precious real objects in it or completely made up the objects from your imagination!  Check this fantastic website out to give you some inspiration for magical objects:  https://www.wizardingworld.com/features/magical-objects-of-the-wizarding-world

This task is inspired by a poem by Kit Wright called ‘The Magic Box’.  Here is Kit performing his poem: 


Once you have created your box, we would like you to write a poem about it, just like Kit did.   The title of the poem could be ‘The Magic Box’ (or you can give your poem a different title).

Each verse of your poem starts with:  I will put in the box

And then follow by describing 3 items.  Your description needs to be as imaginative and exciting as possible!  You can use lots of adjectives and we’d love to see some similes too!  Here’s a quick reminder of what similes are:


For example:

I will put in the box

A dreamcatcher woven with Amazonian parrot feathers

The blood of a spotted weasel.

A glittering lizard with scales as gold as the sun.

You can have as many verses as you like.  ENJOY! 


New Home Learning Packs!

If you didn't get a chance to pick up the new Home Learning packs from school last week, don't worry, we have uploaded them here.  You'll find an english pack, a maths pack, a science project and a geography project.   The science project involves growing 2 bean plants but if you don't have any beans, we have left some spares at school for you - just contact the school office to pick some up.  

Inventions creative challenge entries!

Ever wanted to shrink and jump into your favourite computer game?  Fancy some shoes that allow  you to dance like a professional dancer?  Or perhaps a flower pot that takes care of the plant for you?  Our crazy inventors have been hard at work in their inventing laboratories and have cooked up some CRAZY and AMAZING inventions that will ASTOUND you!!!  Well done to Ayaan, Mayssa, Harry, Theo (check out his BRILLIANT video instructions below!), Attia, Maryam, Victoria, Mihail, Oskars, Olive (you can read about her amazing invention in the word document below) and Iris (check out Iris' FANTASTIC stop motion video below!!!).  We are blown away by your creativity!

For this week’s challenge you’re going to be the world’s most innovative (and perhaps a little crazy) inventors!  If you could invent ANYTHING what would it be?  Maybe your invention makes something or changes something?  Maybe it helps people in some way?  It could be an invention for a real life problem or completely imaginary! 

Step 1: Think up your invention and give it a name.  It might help to discuss ideas with other people in your family or look on the internet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8yBltrVG0oU  I have also uploaded a Powerpoint all about famous inventors - see below.

Step 2: Draw your invention.  Think carefully about how it works and the different parts it will need.  You could even build a model of it! 

Step 3: Label your invention.

Step 4: Write a description of your invention explaining what it does. 

Step 5: Write some clear instructions for how to use your invention.

Here is mine  The Incredible Mind-Translating Device!

Hello Year 2 children, parents and carers! 

We hope you are all well.  We miss you very much and wish we could see your lovely faces smiley.

Although we're not at school, we've been busy thinking up lots of fun activities you can do to keep your brain busy and happy while you're at home.  Head to our new Home Learning page for plenty of ideas but you can also visit us here for activities especially for Year 2 children and updates from the Year 2 teaching team.  

Here's a lovely art idea you can do to share a little happiness with others... make a rainbow with a happy message and stick it in your window for everyone to see.  You could paint it, draw it with felt tips or even make it out of cut up materials.  However you like but make it bright and cheerful! 


Stay happy everyone!  Big hugs,

Mrs Ramasamy, Mrs Rahman, Miss Fisher and Mrs Ahmed xxxx
