Thursday 4th March 2021
Today is ‘World Book Day’ so we will be focusing on books and sharing stories! Please see the ‘Book Week- sharing stories’ folder on the Remote Learning channel for books read by a variety of school staff.
At 10.30am, there is a 'World Book Day' special event 'Bringing Reading to Life'. See this link for the live event: https://www.worldbookday.com/event/words-pictures-bring-reading-to-life/
Starring: Joseph Coelho & Fiona Lumbers, Tom Fletcher and Lydia Monks and special guest Rob Biddulph. Hosted by Nigel Clarke, TV presenter
Question of the day: Can dogs look at books?
Write the question on a piece of paper and add sound buttons. Can you use the sound buttons to help you read the question?
Tricky word hunt: Write a list of tricky words on a piece of paper (I, go, to, the, no, into, he, she, we, me, be, you, they, are). Next, put out lots of different books not just children’s books for your child to explore. You could also have magazines, leaflets or takeaways menus that they have to search for the tricky words in. Once they’ve spotted a word they tick word on the sheet. After, count how many of each tricky word was found.
Go on a ‘World Book Day’ Scavenger Hunt!
Make sure you have lots of books for this hunt! Can you find each item in one of the books from your collection? How many can you find? (see sheet in the resources below).
Then choose your favourite book and design a new book cover (see template below).
1.05-1.50pm: ‘virtual visit’ with Author Caryl Hart – please join on Teams! During the session, your child’s camera will need to be turned off and on mute so Caryl can talk to the children without any distractions. Please see the follow up activities in the resources below.

Compassionate God, we ask you: to fill us with your love, to place in our hearts a spirit of courage, to move us to reach out to others in need. And lead us to play our part, so that now and in generations to come all your children may share in our hope for a better world.
