Welcome to year 3
Values driven learning
This half term our class novel is The Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura
A boy stumbles upon a cave and finds himself stranded in the Stone Age! He meets a strange girl called Om and is taken in by her family. He is taught the ways of her people but will he make it back home? We will be using Talk For Writing to orally rehearse sentences and reflect upon the vocabulary used and any patterns we notice. By the end of this unit we will be using our imaginations, knowledge of the book and the Stone Age to create our own Stone Age story.
