7En1 Numeracy reading task SRA Due Wednesday 10th December

For ‘Number Day’ you have a numeracy based task. The question is ‘How many pages do I need to read per day in order to reach 1 million (1000,000) words by February half term?’

You need to work out:

Number of words read so far (accelerated reader) and subtract from 1000,000.

Number of days until February half term.

Number of words you need to read per day.

Average number of words per page (this depends on the level of books you read so work out an average for the book you are currently reading).

Number of pages you need to read per day to get to 1000,000 words in the number of days between now and February half term.

Everybody’s answer will be different.

Do you think you can read a million words by February half term?

    Hi Miss,
    How do I know how many words I have read? I have already done the accelerated reading test and don’t know how I can find out how many words I have read again.

      Hi Kyeesha,
      You needed to find out from Mrs Wilson in the library. Don’t worry now, just work it out as if you have a million words still to read. We can take off the number you have read later.

      Hi Lottie
      Please work through the instructions and try; if you get it wrong, it doesn’t matter.

      Please try and bring something tomorrow. I will help you in the lesson if you get stuck but give it your best effort before.
