# Thursday 4th March

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:

## Thursday message

PE

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.

Maths

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.

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!

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.

Then, you can pick one or more of the activities below to do. I hope you enjoy them.
You could write an acrostic poem linked to World Book Day. It could be about your favourite book or author or you could use the template below. Remember that an acrostic poem is when you write the word down the side and then write an idea for each letter in the word.
You could think about your favourite 5 authors, illustrators, books... and record your ideas on the sheet below.
I know lots of you enjoy wordsearches, so you could try to find these well-known authors names in the wordsearch below. The answers are on Page 2.
If you have lots of books at home, then you might like to go on a scavenger hunt to see if you can find these different things in any of your books.
You could draw some 'selfies' of your favourite book characters using the phone templates below.
I know how relaxing you find colouring, so you could make some book marks for your friends/family. Perhaps even one for Mothers Day (which is coming up soon!).
Or you might have your own great idea for some art work or writing that you would like to do linked to our World Book Day theme. I don't mind what you pick as long as you are thinking about and enjoying books today!
