Stone Age Boy

Stone Age Boy 1

This half term, we have been looking at the book Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura. It is a lovely story about a modern boy who ends up transported back to the Stone Age. The children started the week experiencing what various Stone Age activities would have been like before writing a diary entry about their first full day in the Stone Age. 

 

The following week, they are going to write some non-fiction books about various aspects of the Stone Age.

The Cave of the Hands

The Cave of the Hands 1 Cueva de las Manos in Argentina
The Cave of the Hands 2 The children have a go at spraying handprints.
The Cave of the Hands 3 Stone Age people used reed or bone straws.
The Cave of the Hands 4 The finished product!
For British Science Week, the children built circuits to answer the quest 'which materials conduct electricity' and wrote up their findings. Many children found out that metal materials conduct electricity the best but were sometimes tricked by things that looked like they would be metal.
