Today is World Book Day!  It is an excellent day to sit back and immerse yourself in your favourite books and authors.  Below you will see a picture and the same file as a sheet of a menu of activities you can complete ranging from book reviews, writing to authors, setting your own comprehension questions to creating imaginary blog pages for a book character.  

Whatever you decide to do, take photos, video, or upload the documents into Seesaw and I look forward to seeing how you are all marking the day.

Remember our whole school event 'The Masked Reader' (instructions for which are in your Seesaw account), can be film today or over the weekend and uploaded so that we can watch them and guess the reader next week when we are all back together.

To carry on the World Book Day theme, I would like you to paint a potato as your favourite book character.  I have put up some pictures as suggestions but Mr Men or Little Miss characters work really well, as do traditional tale and Julia Donaldson characters.  Once painted you can use craft resources to add details such as hats, glasses, scarves etc.  Have a look at the images below for inspiration and watch my video to see if you can guess who my character is.
