Back to the Stone Age!


This half terms topic would have been all about the STONE AGE!!! :)

So below I am going to add tasks and activities below that will help you learn all about this fun and exciting topic! :)

Jump back in time to the Stone Age!



Your first task is to find out about the Stone Age! :)

Below are some resources and videos to help you with your research! Once you have had a read through and discovered some facts about this ancient period of time can you then record some of this wonderful new knowledge?

How you lay out this information is up to you. Here are some suggestions for you...

  • A poster
  • A leaflet
  • Bullet points
  • A mind map
  • A fact file


Pretend you are teaching someone for the first time all about the Stone Age! :) You may even be able to create your poster on a computer?


I can not wait to see what you come up with! :)

Stone Age Time Line!



It looks like you have been doing some incredible research on the STONE AGE and found some fantastic facts about this time in history!


Now I would like you to use these fantastic facts to create a Stone Age time line of your very own!

Try and place the events in the order that they happened.


I have added some examples below to inspire you!

Keep smiling! :)

Get ready to research! 



In our book The Stone Age Boy, he learns a lot of new skills!

  • How to make a fire.
  • How to make and use tools.
  • Preparing and using animal skins
  • Preparing and cooking food.


I would like you to pick one of these 4 topics and collect your own research on it. Once you have gathered a range of facts I would like you to present your new knowledge by creating a poster! You can design it to be as creative and eye catching as you like! :) You may even want to create your poster on the computer? :)


I can not wait to see what you produce! :)

Compare and Contrast!



I hope you enjoyed the last task I set you! I am sure your brains are now bursting with amazing knowledge and facts about the Stone Age! You have all been working incredibly hard and I am so proud of you! :)


For this weeks topic task I would like you to COMPARE AND CONTRAST! This means I would like you to think about what is similar about how the Stone Age people lived and how we live today and what is different between the two lifetimes! :) I have added some points below for you to consider...

  • The type of house we live in.
  • Compare how they found and cooked food.
  • What type of jobs do we have compared to what they have?
  • Are our clothes the same?
  • Where do we get light and heat from and where did the Stone Age people get there's from?


Use the research links we have been using from previous tasks to help you with this task. I have also added a template for you to use below if you like, or you can create your own!


Keep smiling! :)

Next week is half term and then we will be onto our new topic... GREEN FINGERS!


Linking to this theme I would like you to create you own VEG FOR FUN photo! Think of the best way that you can make growing, cooking and eating vegetables fun, ready for our exciting new topic!
