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 GruffaloWilly Wonka from Charlie
and the Chocolate Factory
Harry Potter
Little Red Riding HoodMatildaCat 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.
