World Book Day

We've heard from lots of different authors this week via the World Book Day website: Derek Landy, Katherine Rundell, Jeff Kinney and Chris Riddell. Unfortunately, the link for the Struan Murray Zoom call arrived too late to be of any use, but the Eagles made up for it by choosing one of the alternative activities. Lots chose to draw maps of fictional lands, which I really enjoyed looking at. At the time of writing we have yet to watch Jeff Kinney, but I suspect he will be a firm favourite of some children, or Chris Riddell, who the Year 6s saw at the last Literature Festival we were able to attend. In school previous Maths lessons from the fabled Mr Kelsall helped George to answer a 15:1 question! It's been interesting for me to see the children's approaches to more open-ended Maths tasks which benefit from perseverance - we'll be having a Week of Inspirational Maths on our return.
