Happy World Book Day!
Today is world book day! This is going to take a very different structure to what we are used to in school. But, we are going to have a day off timetable (apart from maths).
We usually dress up as your favourite character from a story but you do not need to do this at home, however, if you do wish too, I would love to see your fantastic outfits!
We will begin today with a story, this one is one of my favourites:
Now its challenge time!
Here are two creative challenges for you to choose from, please only do one, but it is nice to have the option! We will celebrate your creative pieces in tomorrow blog, so please send them over to me as soon as possible.
Option 1: Paint a potato
Decorate a potato as a character from a book using paint. Be as inventive as you like. The potato does not have to be a character. It can be an object or scene or setting from a book Please challenge yourself. Take a look at the pictures to get ideas.
Option 2: Anything egg box
Use old egg boxes to create artwork based on a book. This can be a character which is the obvious choice but challenge yourself to be creative with your ideas. In one example here, an old egg box have been used to create the backpack from the front cover of The Boy at the Back of the Class.
You could also, if you have time, listen to another one of my favourite stories, The Tiger Who Came to Tea, and complete the activity booklet below.
Maths: To measure lengths and heights
Today you have another practical activity to help you explore different lengths and heights.
Follow along with the lesson here
What objects around your house can you use to measure with?
Using blocks or something similar, can you measure the length of your cutlery?
Now find some other objects to measure. What will you use to measure them with? Remember they need to be the same size!
Have fun exploring!!
I hope you have a wonderful world book day! Can you share your favourite story with someone at home?
