If people return their library items late there is an overdue fee. For children’s books the fee is 5 pence per day. If you returned a book a week late, **how much** would you have to pay? What if it was a fortnight late? A month with 30 days? 6 months late? What if it was a year late?!

The overdue fee for adult books is 25 pence a day. If you returned a book a week late, **how much** would you have to pay? What if it was a fortnight late? A month with 30 days? 6 months late? What if it was a year late?!

Is there an **area of maths** that you find challenging? See if you can borrow a resource from the library that will help you with this maths topic.

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?

**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?
