We had great fun with an empty cardboard box while we developed our vocabulary! We used it to help us learn about the other pupils in our class. We tried to guess who was hiding in it before they jumped up; we said their names when we recognised them.

Do try this at home (if you haven’t already done so)!

We then built another box with jumbo Lego bricks. We worked together to make it as high as it could be… every brick was used! Classroom objects were placed inside it and, to be able to see what was in the box, one pupil brought over the step stool from the sink and we all followed his lead and stood on it to look inside.

Can your child tell you what was in the box when they are shown these photographs?

Clues: an Elmer elephant toy, five forks… and a shoe!
