Week Beginning 22nd February 2021
Stone Age Boy
All of our work for the next three weeks will be around this book. Please watch the video clip of the book being read first..
Monday 22nd February
Watch the video clip and have a go at answering the following questions:
- Who are the main characters?
- What has happened to the boy in the story?
- How might the boy be feeling?
- How do you think it happened?
- How do you think he is feeling?
- Are the people in the village reacting to the boy the way you think they would/should be?
Write down your answers and send them to Mr Hicks. We will be going through them on Zoom.
Tuesday 23rd February
Re-watch the video and discuss the story with a family member or adult. Think about the questions that you might ask Om or the boy. Use question words: Who? What? When? Where? Why? and How?
Think of as many questions as you can and write these on some paper/post-it notes. Then, order them from most to least relevant/important in the shape of a diamond. You can write them directly onto the worksheet below if you would like.
Wednesday 24th February
Re-watch the video of the story being read at the top of the page. During this lesson you will be writing expanded noun phrases to describe the characters and settings from the Stone Age Boy story.
Watch the video below of Mrs Bennett teaching you what expanded noun phrases are and how to complete the sheet. Once you have watched the lesson, use the worksheet below to complete your work. Once you have written some sentences, think of your own based on the people, settings and objects from the story.
Thursday 25th February
Re-watch the video (of the story at the top of this page) and really think about the characters in the story.
- What do they look like?
- What are they like as people?
- How might they be feeling?
- What are they doing?
- How would they react to each other and their new situation?
Watch the lesson of Mrs Bennett teaching you all about conjunctions. Whilst watching this, think about how you might use the strip of conjunctions in your writing. Think about making the correct choice of conjunction for your sentence. Make sure you ask an adult to help you select the right ones if you are struggling to work out which is the correct conjunction for that sentence.
Once you have watched the video, go on to complete your work on the worksheet below, using the describing words and conjunctions.
Friday 26th February
Re-watch the video (if needed) from the link at the top of the page and really think about all the people, objects and settings in the pictures and story.
- What can you see?
- What do they look like?
- How might they smell?
- How might they feel?
- What might you hear?
Watch the video of Mrs Bennett teaching you all about Commas in a list and look at the two boxes at the bottom of today's sheet.
1. Choose to make a list of things that you might find in the pictures to create a list:
The camp was full of people busily drying fish, roasting fish and making tools.
2. Choose to make a list of adjectives to describe a noun to create your list:
The fish, that were drying on the rack, were small, silver and tasty.
Once you have watched the video, go on to complete your work using the worksheet below.
