Stone Age

The History topic for this term is

Stone Age/Bronze Age/Iron Age.



The homework challenge below can be used to investigate the topic in a creative way.
The class book that we are reading is called "The Boy with the Bronze Axe" by Kathleen Fidler. This classic story is set in the ancient Stone Age village of Skara Brae on Orkney. This is a fascinating and vividly portrayed story of life nearly 3,000 years ago. Kali and Brockan are in trouble. 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.
