Homework and Projects Summer term 2019

 

Well done everyone for the fantastic projects that you brought in last term and the beginning of this term. Here is a new bingo grid with homework projects related to our prehistory topic of The Stone Age and science topic of Rocks. You can choose to complete the tasks in any order. The first piece of homework should be brought in by Friday 12th May.

  • How you present the information/finished work is up to you, but it will be suitable for keeping in your project journal (A4). Those who choose to complete projects using various digital formats will need to print out their final versions so they can be added to their journals. 
  • Work needs to be well presented and of a Key Stage 2 standard.

 

 

Get creative : Make a collage out of pictures of rocks or pebbles. You could create a picture out of rocks and natural materials and take a photograph of your creation to bring in to school.

 

Research the types of stones used by the people of the Stone Age. Explain what they were used for.    

Stone Age people could not pop to the shop for food. Everything they ate had to be caught or collected.

Write your own recipe for a stone age dinner using the sort of ingredients that would be available to them.

Write a short poem about the Stone Age (eg an acrostic poem or kenning etc).

Investigate which rocks we use in our modern lives. Make a list of natural and man-made rocks that are used in your home or at school.

Design and make an ancient stone circle or a replica of Stonehenge. Be

creative in the way you make your stone circle.

Write a quiz about the Stone Age (don’t forget to include the answers!).

Write a list of questions you would like to ask a Stone Age person.

PASSPORT TO THE WORLD

The beginning of the year began with our Passport to the World week.

Year 3 and 4 studied North America.

We found out about the history of the country, their culture and traditions.

We read a Native American traditional tale called, 'How Raven Stole the Sun' by Maria Williams.

We re-enacted the story to gain a better understanding of its true meaning.
