Your first task for World Book Day is to use the internet to research our focus author for this half term, Pamela Oldfield or an author of your choice. You can print the fact file below or you can create your own in your book.
The next activity is a fun game that you can play at home. You will need at least one other person to play this game with you.
Cut out the cards below or make your own using paper from your pack.
Place the cards face down and select a card. Put the card on your head or hold it there so that you cannot see it but the people playing with you can. You must ask them questions to try and work out who you are. I have left some of the cards blank so that you can add some of the characters from your favourite books.
e.g. Am I a human?
Am I a boy?
Do I climb a beanstalk?
|The Gruffalo||Willy Wonka from Charlie|
and the Chocolate Factory
|Little Red Riding Hood||Matilda||Cat in the Hat|
Today you will be completing some maths activities linked to World Book Day.
The first activity will allow you to practice your recall of addition and subtraction facts.
The next activity requires you to read the problems carefully and work out the answers using addition, subtraction or multiplication.
As it is World Book Day, this afternoon we will be continuing with some World Book Day tasks.
Can you complete the table below?
I have given you a list of characters but can you tell me a story that they can be found in? Some of the characters can only be found in a specific books but others can be found in many. I have given you an example.
|Flopsy Bunny||Peter Rabbit|
