Stone Age

Our topic for this term is Stone Age/Bronze Age/Iron Age.

Below is a homework challenge sheet. It provides opportunities for you to investigate the topic in a creative and fun way.

The book we are reading together is called "The Boy with the Bronze Axe" by Kathleen Fidler.

A short story focusing on a settlement on a remote Scottish isle.
One day a young boy called Tenko saves a boy and girl from drowning. He is welcomed (by most) into their tribe and he teaches them new skills. In return he is given an honorary place in the tribe.
This is a peaceful community, yet times of great trouble are predicted.
We watch as the community struggle with rivalry, the hostile environment and threats from other tribes.
