Lesson 1 (27th April)

 

To use decoding strategies to find the meaning of new vocabulary.

 

  • Try to guess the meaning of an unfamiliar word by understanding the context of the sentence it is in. 
  • Discuss (maybe with you sibling or parent) and try to answer each question at a time. 

Activity 1

 

1. What two types of food they eat?

2. Which word in the text do you think means "fix"?

3. Tell me three actions you can do with meat?

4. What are their tents made of?

5. What was put into a bag when making soup?

Activity 2

 

If you were living in the Stone Age which job would you like the most and why?

It has to be one of the jobs from the text.

Lesson 2 (28th April)

 

To discuss reasons for actions and events in a text.

 

  • Think of the questions and use of language to create effect, for example similes.
  • Can you see how the text moves from being very still to lots of action? Why is that?
  • Think what might happen next. Try to provide reasoning. For example, I think they will hunt the reindeer because the animal is alone and eating, so they can catch him.

Activity 1

 

Debate - Is it ok to hunt animals or not?

Create a mind map whether it is ok to hunt animals or not. List as many reasons for both sides of the argument as you can.

Model and encourage language: 

Lesson 3 (29th April)

 

We are Hot Seating our characters!

 

Today, we are Hot Seating our two main characters from "Stone Age Boy". Ask them some interesting questions to find as much information as you can about their personality, life, family and friends, things they like to do.

Lesson 4 (30th April)

 

To be able to understand how a character feels.

 

Today we are going to describe our main characters.

  • Find evidence in the text about characters.
  • Look at images. What do you think characters are thinking, feeling? Why?
  • Imagine if you had fallen down a hole to a new place and then met a Stone Age girl that took you to a camp. How would you feel?

 

Activity 1

 

Describe a character:

  • his/her personality (brave, caring, determined)
  • his/her physical appearance (tall, blue eyes, short hair)
  • use interesting adjectives and similes.

Lesson 5 (1st May)

 

Using speech bubbles.

 

Look at the pictures below. Write what each character is saying or thinking in the speech bubble.

You can also draw your own pictures with speech bubbles included.
