# Week 2

## World Book Day SPaG and Maths Challenge

#### World Book Day Token Hunt Story

It’s World Book Day, and everyone is busy sharing their favourite books with each other. All around the school, in every corner, children and adults are huddled together and chatting through what they love most about reading.

It’s getting close to the end of the day, when you remember that there are special book tokens to give out to everyone who has taken part.

You head over to the school library to find the tokens. You remember that the librarian said he would leave them in the cupboard for you.

When you arrive at the cupboard, the door is locked and you need a code to unlock it. Solve the clues and puzzles to discover the passcode number needed to unlock the cupboard and get the tokens.

The clues could be anywhere, so you need to keep your eyes peeled and your mind sharp!

** The clues to unlock the code can be found on the pdf below along with an answer sheet to record the numbers.

Catrina wants to know how many football cards she has collected.
She has filled up five pages of her scrapbook and on each page there are four cards.

Can you show how you would find out?  You might draw a picture or do some jottings. See how many different ways you can show this problem.

### Spicy

On Friday at 9 am, the magic plant was only 2 centimetres tall.

Every twenty four hours, it doubled its height.

How tall was it on Monday at 9 am?

### Hot

Choose any two numbers, such as 4 and 5. One must be even and the other odd.

Try multiplying them together. How could you show this?

When you multiply an even and an odd together it will always be an even number.

Do you agree or disagree? Be sure to give evidence to prove your answer.
