We have been using Talk for Writing techniques to explore and learn ‘Stone Age Boy’ by Satoshi Kitamura. The adventure story is about a boy who time travels back to the stone age and meets a girl who shows him what stone age life was like. They have an exciting time together before he time travels back and becomes an archaeologist later in life. We retold the story using actions and made story maps. We also looked at the parts of the story and boxed it up into 5 parts.Year 3
In History we found different artifacts around school and inferred what they were used for. They were all from the Stone Age! We have also been learning about Stone Age art. We discovered that they draw or painted on the sides of caves using hands as stencils. They also painted amazing pictures of the animals that were around in the Stone Age, many of which are extinct now. We used chalk and charcoal to make our own cave pictures.
