Jack's In His Box - By Ali Dee
Jack's in his box … but wishes he could pop up and pop out to play with Tilly. Strange and wonderful things happen when his wish comes true! This magical musical for 4-7 year olds has 10 catchy songs, many of which can stand alone to be used throughout the year for different purposes - action songs, songs about weather, toys & play and songs to play instruments to.
Included are additional activities to link to these songs - activities to support your work across the curriculum in your classroom or for children to explore on their own. This musical can particularly be used to support key aspects of the KS1 PHSE and Citizenship curriculum, using it to explore concepts such as our place in the world, concern for others, responsibility, fairness, feelings. It opens up the possibilities of looking at differences and disability, thinking about children who may feel different or left out for whatever reason, and the emotions around those issues.
