All the year 1 and 2 classes are reading and using Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura as a stimulus for learning over the next couple of weeks. Although it is more of a picture book than a novel, it contains so much information that we will be using it as a focus for several lessons.
We will be re-telling the story, learning about life in the Stone Age and creating cave paintings using sticks and stones.
Help at home by talking about the past, present and future. Talk about major events in history including that of our own lifetimes and the more distant past. How was life different when you or your older relatives were young compared to that of your child?
