LI: Retrieve information
Please read the text and then answer the comprehension questions using your reading skills. The file contains three versions of the text which increase in level of difficulty so choose the one that best suits you. The answers are also there so that a grown up can check you work for you if they wish.
LI: Box up the story of Stone Age Boy.
We will soon be planning and writing our own Stone Age time travel stories, based on ‘Stone Age Boy’. Before we plan our own stories it will be very useful to make notes about what happened in each section of ‘Stone Age Boy’.
Using the boxes below, please make notes about the MAIN things that happened in the beginning and build-up of the story. Then explain the problem, (being stuck in the Stone Age), the resolution (going back to the present) and the ending. Tomorrow you will be planning what will happen in each section of your own story.
This week in Maths we will be learning about fractions. However, due to previous lockdowns, the children have missed out on much of their previous learning related to fractions. Therefore, we need to recap some Key Stage One learning as a foundation for the next steps. However, I think the children will work through this very quickly so I have decided to cover 2 areas each day this week.
So I will assign 2 lesson videos and sets of worksheets each day, but for children who are completely secure, you may choose to ask them to do just the 2nd sheet for each lesson.

Yesterday you learned a little about the eras within the Stone Age to Iron Age period. Today we will be learning about some of the changes that occurred during this time and order events on a timeline.
Please have a look through the powerpoint presentation on the link below and then create a timeline by printing, cutting and sticking or by copying the cards and arranging them in to chronological order. Remember, that for BC dates, the highest number is the longest ago and so would come first on a timeline.
