Good morning Class Four and welcome to World Book Day!!!
All of your learning today will be linked to books, so I really hope you enjoy it all. Remember that you can dress up today if you would like to, but you don't have to.
Here is a morning message for you from Mrs Soley:
For all of those Harry Potter fans out there - this is a Harry Potter themed PE challenge!!! I'm sure lots of you will be excited to get involved in this one.
Start by completing your Beat That challenge. If you don't have one, email me and I will send it over to you. Give yourself 2 minutes to complete it. Let me know how you get on so I can update my tracker. Good luck!
For your Maths lesson today, you have two choices, both linked to World Book Day:
1. You might like to work through the Roald Dahl themed Maths challenge problems below. For each problem, read it carefully, think about which operation you will need to use and whether it is a one-step or multi-step problem, carry out your calculations and then write your answer in a sentence. I've included my workings and answers so you can check your work.
2. You might want to have a go at the mystery challenge below. Make sure you read the instructions very carefully - especially where it says things like: the winner is, or the winner is not! The answers are towards the end of this document. On the first clue, you have to work out fractions of amounts. This is something we haven't covered yet this year, but you have all done it before. I've given an example of how to do this below, so have a look at this if you're not sure how to do it.
11am Talk About Your Favourite Book Live
As it is World Book Day today, I thought it would be really nice if we all talked about what our favourite book is and why and shared a little bit about it. Hopefully, we will all hear about some books we haven't read and might want to read in the future. If you have a copy of the book, bring it with you to show everyone, but don't worry if you haven't, you can still talk about it!
If you want to dress up as a book character (it doesn't have to be from the book you are talking about), then that would be great too. But you don't have to!
Join the meet link on Google Classroom at 11am and I look forward to hearing about your books!
World Book Day Afternoon
This afternoon, I thought we would do some more work linked to World Book Day.
All of the teachers at school have filmed themselves reading stories they like. Have a look at the website below and choose some to watch.
When you come to school next week, you will get your World Book Day token. You might like to use this towards buying one of the books if you enjoy it, or you might want to see if it is available to borrow from your local library.
