Can you guess who this masked reader is? I will give you a clue: The masked reader is someone you see all of the time in Foundation Stage. Have you guessed yet? Post your guess on Tapestry and all will be revealed at the end of the day. 

Handwriting

Watch the video below and look carefully at the formation of the letter 'd'. Can you write 'd' correctly? Write this letter on a piece of paper or alternatively complete the 'd' worksheet below. Have a look around your house, how many items can you find that begin with the letter 'd'? 

*Challenge* - can you write these words in your neatest cursive handwriting?

**Today we are celebrating World Book Day.**

In 2021 World Book Day, just like everything else, will be different. We’ve adapted to make sure that World Book Day sends a powerful and positive message about books and reading, even in lockdown.

 

Did you know?

Reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator of a child's future success, more than family circumstances, parents’ educational backgrounds or income.

- Organisation for Economic Co-Operation & Development

 

Sharing stories together for just ten minutes a day will encourage a love of reading and it’s fun for everyone! You can read together anywhere and everywhere, from breakfast to bedtime! In the park, on the train, on the sofa, on a plane – reading and sharing stories can happen anywhere at any time.

Today, spend some time thinking about your favourite book.

 

*What is your favourite book and why?

 

*Can you design a new front cover for your favourite book? 

 

*Can you dress up as a character from your favourite book?

 

*Challenge* Can you read your favourite book or retell the story in your own words to a family member? Perhaps you could phone a family member who does not live with you and share it with them. 

Can you design a new front cover for your favourite book?

problem solving

Start with 10 objects, close your eyes and get someone to take some away - how many do you have left? How many did they take? How do you know? Remember to explain your answer - "I know you took 6 away because I have 4 left and I know to make 10, if 4 is one part, 6 must be the other."
