Well done on your garden surveys from last week. This weeks task is connected with the poem Magic Box by Kit Wright, which we’ve been looking at in school. You can see Kit Wright reading it by clicking on the image to the left. What would you put in your Magic Box? What would it look like? Perhaps make a list, or draw a picture to show the magic box and its contents.

Your home learning task this week is to look around your garden and see what plant life you can find. Record it however you like (draw pictures, make a list, take photographs) and compare it to the plant life that you found when looking at the Recreation Ground.
