Stone Age Topic

We have been doing lots of work on our Stone Age topic this week. We loved looking at the stone age cave paintings that have been discovered across the world. We noticed that they often drew animals, fire and weapons. They also painted around their hands a lot too, we think this might be to represent the different families and groups that lived in their village. We created our own using chalk in similar styles and thought carefully about the types of colours they would have been able to use in prehistoric times.


This week, in our English lessons, class three have been looking at Stone Age Boy. A story all about a boy who falls down a hole and travels back in time. Before we read the story, we made predictions using only the front cover from the book. Some of us even noticed that the boy was wearing trainers so he can’t have possibly been from the Stone Age. Once we had listened to the whole story, we used role play to retell the story in our own words and came up with some actions to help us remember the key events of the story. We really enjoyed coming up with our own actions and some of us were very imaginative with them.

Here is a photo of some of us celebrating catching a reindeer by having a dance around the campfire.
