Summer Term 2
The End of The Stone Age
This term you have learned lots about The Stone Age. For this week's topic lesson we are going to be finding out about what came next.
There is a PowerPoint to go through and at the end there is a link to a BBC clip. After that there is a mind map to complete. You can use the information from the PowerPoint and clip, and any other facts that you can find using your own research.
This week we are using another of the 'Imagine' task sheets.
This week's is called 'Pelt' and it is about the use of fur for clothing during The Stone Age.
I'm attaching a PowerPoint for you to read, then I'd like you to complete either the Respond or the Discover task on the Exploration sheet. It is entirely up to you which one you choose to do.
This week for our joint topic and art lessons we are going to be looking at fire. There is a PowerPoint and an Exploration sheet like you are used to now.
For the topic lesson I would like you to do the Respond task and create an advertisement.
For the art lesson I would like you to do the Re-imagine task and create some artwork to look like a fire. It could be a collage, but you can use whatever resources you have at home.
Week commencing 15th June
Topic and Art
This week for our joint art and topic afternoons, we are going to have a look at cave art. There are 2 power points and a website link as well as the exploration sheet like we had last week about Mammoths.
Follow the link below to our Art page to find the tasks.
Week Commencing 8.6.2020
Having read Stone Age boy and made Stone Age homes last week, you now know quite a bit about how life would have been in the Stone Age.
This week We would like you to find out about Skara Brae. It is a Stone Age settlement on the Orkney Islands and is quite different to the wooden and mud homes from other areas in the country. Use the PDF and all the other information you have learned about the Stone Age to write a diary entry for a day in Skara Brae.
Week Commencing 1.6.2020
This week your art/D.T and Topic lessons are going to be one project that you can spend a little longer on if you need to.
We are going to learn about Stone Age homes. The Stone Age lasted for three and half million years, so over that time the homes changed a lot. Below is a power-point and a short video clip about what Stone Age homes might have been like and how they changed over time.
The video explains a little bit about how we know about this too.
After you have watched the clip and learnt about the types of homes the stone age people had, we would like you to have a go at drawing and labeling a Stone Age home of your own, or even making a model of one!
History - The Stone Age
This term our Topic is The Stone Age. I have attached the Knowledge Organiser for this topic for you to see what we will be covering.
This week we are learning about the timeline of The Stone Age. Please read this PowerPoint which explains what chronology is and how long ago The Stone Age was. As you go through the pages, there are tasks for you to think about, please have a go at them before moving on to the next page.
Today's task involves placing some events from The Stone Age into chronological order. I have attached two sets of cards - one is easier and one is harder - and your job is to sort the events on the cards into the correct chronological order.
Don't worry if you can't print the cards off - just write the events and dates in your book in the correct order.
The answers are included in the documents - please try to complete the activity without looking.
Tip - when dates are BC or BCE, the bigger the number, the longer ago it was.
I've attached a PowerPoint for you to look through which explains the types of food that were eaten in this period of time.
Attached below is a survival guide, it shows you the types of food that can be found in different seasons. Print or copy the seasons wheel and draw or write the foods in the correct season.
At the end of the power point, it suggests that you could try stewing up some fruit with some honey like the stone age people would have done. As an extra activity, you could have a go at stewing some fruit.Soft fruits would work, but apples and pears peeled and chopped would also work. Have a go at this if only if your parents have some suitable fruit at home and they say that it is ok.
We are continuing our learning about Stone Age food this week.
Last week you learned that during this time people were hunter gatherers and ate a variety of different foods, some of which are the same as we eat now - maybe we just eat it in a different way!
Your task for this week is to try and find some of the foods that would be 'gathered' if you go on a walk this week.
The above sheet you used last week tells you what grows at different times of year - so it gives you some help in knowing what to look for.
You could take pictures of whatever you find and put them in your Portfolio on ClassDojo.
For the last 3 weeks, you have been learning about the types of food that were eaten by people during The Stone Age. This week I'd like you to put together all the things that you have learned and create a 3 course meal that could have been eaten during that time. I'd also like you to show the contrast by including what your ideal 3 course meal would be. As with any menu, your challenge is to make the food on there sound appealing!
I've attached some sample menus and a word mat with adjectives that you can use to describe food to help you create some enticing descriptions.
You can print my template or design your own menu.
We have learned a lot about Stone Age food and how the people gathered edible plants and made tools and weapons to hunt for animals. This week please have a look at the BBC Bite size lesson on Prehistoric Britain by following the link below. There are videos to watch and images to click on that will help you to learn about how we know about things that happened such a long time ago.
Choose one of the suggested activities to do.
