# Thursday

## World Book Day

Today is World Book Day. If you were at school, you would normally dress up as a character from your favourite book. Therefore, today I would like you to dress up as a character and take a picture with your book. Try and be as creative as you can!

Here is a picture of my character from my favourite book:

Please have a go at today's arithmetic task. You may take as long as you need on the questions.

The second part of the lesson we will be learning how to find a quarter. Again, please watch the video and complete the worksheet.

## English

This week in English, we are going to re-write the 'Stone Age Boy'. Today, we are going to focus on the middle part of the story.

As we are re-writing the 'Stone Age Boy', we still need use the story but add in extra details to make it even more exciting. If you can't remember the beginning of the story, I have attached the PowerPoint below.

For the middle section, I would like you to choose a few key events that happen in the story. You don't need to write about all the event but choose the ones that are most exciting to you.

I have written my own example of the first paragraph. Please read it and have a go at yours. Please write 3 paragraphs explain what the boy is doing with Om. Remember you are writing in first person, as if you were the boy.

My example:

The next morning, I woke up to birds chirping and the bright, golden sun shining. It was very strange waking up on the hard, solid floor and not in my warm, cosy bed. However, I was so excited to see Om and explore the unusual campsite. Everyone had an interesting, challenging job to do and I wondered what mine was going to be.

## Art

Today in art, I would like you to design your own book cover. You can recreate the book cover for your favourite book or design your own book cover for an imaginary book.

I can't wait to see you fantastic drawings!
