Reading - The Ickabog
J K Rowling has released a new story online called 'The Ickabog'. It is a story she wrote a while ago for her children, who really enjoyed - it will be officially published in November. I thought we could read a few chapters of it this week.
Read Chapter 1 on the link and meet King Fred the Fearless:
What does 'fair haired' mean?
2.Draw Fred the fearless.
3. What was Fred's favourite past time?
4 What are the names of his two best friends?
5They are bad friends. True or false? Explain your answer.

Watch the video on literacy shed:
Retell the story in a fairytale style. Here is my example:
Once upon a time, in a small French village lived a little shoe maker. His shop stocked many beautiful shoes- people came from far away to buy his footwear. There was something special about this man's shoes- a secret magic that made them different-they could move and make noises!
One morning a beautiful maidan ,wondered into town looking for some new shoes. The old man puffed up his chest and began shining the shoes in the windows, excited to sell them. Captivated by the beauty of the shoes the women stared and began to move to the door of the shop. Just as the little man was sure he would be making a sale ,there was a loud sound and a smartly dressed man appeared from nowhere with a mobile shoe store.The little shoekeeper knew that this meant trouble!
Count in 2s
0, 2, 4…… 20
What happens if we make the 2 ten times bigger- what would we be counting in?
Count in 20s
0, 20 ,40, 60….
Can you find all the 2d numbers where the sum of the digits is 5?
56 + ? = 100
? + 34 = 100
62 + ? = 100
? + 43 = 100
12 ÷ 3 =
18 ÷ 3 =
16÷ 4 =
28 ÷ 4 =
45 ÷ 5 =
15 ÷ 5 =
Lets get creative!
You might not have a garden but don't worry that doesn’t mean you can’t create nature art. Go on a walk or visit a park and you’ll be sure to find a lovely assortment of things which can be used creatively together. The sky is the limit so anything goes. Make sure you find things that have already fallen off of trees, flowers and bushes. Other interesting items like seed pods, feathers or pebbles.
You will need natural items such as (but not exclusively):
• Small branches of greenery
• Anything else you fancy
How to:Place your nature items in a pile and arrange them in pictures and patterns. There are no rules for what to create, anything goes!
We made fairies, patterns, abstract designs and even a fish.
If you can't get outside don't worry - you can still do some art- you can draw different things for example leaves, twigs, petal,berries.
