**Create a number code **for the alphabet (e.g. a =1 b=2 be a bit more adventurous than this example) write your theme words using this code – can anyone crack your codes?!

Now ask an adult to write some addition, subtraction, multiplication and division sums in this code. Can you **decode** these and then solve them?

For one week, read every day for an hour, record how many pages you read in that hour. **Plot this information on a bar graph**. Now interpret the data: on which day did you read the most amount of pages? On which day did you read the least amount of pages? What other information can be determined from the data?

**Upper KS2:** From the above data can you find the mean, median, range and mode?

**Extension: **can you convert and record the total amount of time spent reading from hours to minutes and then possibly even seconds?

Each book in the *Diary of a Wimpy Kid *series has preciously 217 pages in it. There are 13 books so far. What is the **total** number of pages in the series?

**Upper KS2: **For this activity you will need to have begun reading but not yet finished a *Diary of a Wimpy Kid* book: How many pages have you read of the book? There are 217 pages, what percentage of the book have you read?

In the book *Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw*, Greg receives a book for Christmas called ‘Math is Rad’ to help him with his **algebra.** What do you know about algebra? Could you create a YouTube tutorial type video that will assist Greg with his understanding of algebra?
