Wednesday 3rd March

Please see below for a list of activities you can try for the afternoon on No Screen Wednesday (3rd March)


Book character model - Make a book character using objects from home, it could be using vegetables or you could dress up a teddy bear! Think of things you could use that give big clues as to who the character is.  Show your designs in a class Meet Thursday and see if they can guess who they are!  (See sheet below).


Redesign the front cover - Redesign the front cover to one of your books.

Can you make a design that would make people want to buy it if they saw it in a shop? Try to match the design of the cover to the genre of the book.

Share your designs in the class Meet on Thursday. (See sheet below).


Story Jar Quiz - Collect some items from a story and put them in a jar or pot. Can your classmates work out what book they are from?  If you don’t have the real objects, you could draw a jar with the objects inside it. (See sheet below).


Book review – complete a book review using one of the 4 templates below.


Book scavenger hunt - Can you find each of the objects in a book? Which book is it? How many times is it mentioned? 


Book Quiz - Design a quiz about a book. Write down 10 questions about a single book.  Find out how well your class mates know that book! Or try the story description quiz below!


DEAR - Drop Everything And Read.  Find a book at home, it may be one you have read or it may belong to someone else (ask permission!) and read for at least 20 minutes.
