Note for adults:
If children know that 2 × 2 =4 and 2 × 3= 6, can they explain that making pairs of socks from 5 identical socks will give 2 pairs and one sock will be left?

In your pack, there should be some division with remainders challenges:


We hope you enjoyed listening to the Bog Baby story. Thank you to those of you who have sent in your setting descriptions.

Today we would like you to start by improving these short, boring sentences. How could you make them more interesting?

We have received a letter. Please read it carefully:

Make notes or discuss what the professor needs to know, using your knowledge of the story.

Your next writing task is to write a reply to Professor Bigglesworth.

Here is an example:

Dear Professor Bigglesworth,

Thank you for your letter. I am pleased to be able to tell you that the creature you have found is called a bog baby.

A bog baby needs very special care. Ideally it should live in the wild in the woods. They love swimming and thrive in boggy ponds. They eat flies and other small insects that live in this habitat. They like to sleep in cool, damp places such as under fallen leaves. You can tell that a bog baby is happy when he sucks his toes and when he jumps up and down.

Bog babies hate to be put in small spaces. They do not like to eat human food like sandwiches or spaghetti. Do not give him cake crumbs as this will make him really poorly. If he turns pale and his wings droop, he may not survive. Has this already happened?

You need to return the bog baby to his home in the woods as soon as possible so that he can survive. I hope this helps and that the bog baby is healthy.

Yours Sincerely,
Year 2.


Learning Objective: use simple compass directions (North, South, East and West) and locational and directional language [for example, near and far; left and right], to describe the location of features and routes on a map.

Do you know the four compass points? Maybe you know a rhyme to remember them?

Task 1: Can you give directions to someone using N,S,E W?

Perhaps you could set out some cones or markers and follow some instructions like on the sheet attached:
