Over the next 3 weeks we will be using the text 'Stone Age Boy'. Click here to access the text.
Watch the video and discuss the story - Who are the main characters? What has happened to the boy in the story? How might he be feeling? How do you think it happened? How do you think he is feeling? Are the people in the village reacting to the boy the way you think the would/should be?
Re-watch the video and discuss the story with a family member/adult. Think about the questions that you might ask Om or the boy. Use question words: Who? What? When? Where? Why? and How?
Think of as many questions as you can and write these on some paper/post-it notes. Then, order them from most to least relevant/important in the shape of a diamond. (See resource 2)
Re-read/listen to and discuss the text. Then, discuss the main events.
Re-tell the story in the form of a journal/diary entry. You can choose whether they write from the perspective of the boy or Om. Re-tell the story as if you have just gotten home after your time in the Stone Age to remember the details of your experiences.

Topic - The Stone Age
This term we start our wonderful Stone Age topic where pupils learn all about our ancestors and how they lived.
This weeks lesson is all about helping pupils identify where in time the Stone Age was, and understand how to use a time line.
Pupils should cut up the different dates and place them onto a timeline in the correct order. It would be really helpful for pupils to have time to discuss it with an adult, paying particular attention to how long ago it was, and how life has changed since.
Use the power point to help you complete the activity
In RE this term we are going to be looking at stories from the Holy Bible and the Qur’an.
For the first lesson you are going to research the Holy Bible and the Qur’an.
With all the wonderful information you find you will make a fact file about both sacred books. You can spilt your page in two or you do it over one full page. You can draw or add pictures to make your fact file colourful and pretty. Make sure you add in some really interesting facts.
