Power of Reading in Sycamore class...

In Sycamore our Power of Reading topic is the Stone Age. We are focusing on two books 'Ug: boy genius of the stone age' and 'Pebble in my pocket'. During Ug we learnt all about life in the stone age and Pebble in my pocket focuses on the history of the Earth and our science topic Rocks.

Within our topic of the Stone Age we have been building timelines through the 3 periods of the stone age and finding out what life would be life as a hunter gather.

During 'Pebble in my pocket' we continue to learn about the Stone Age and focus more on our science topic of 'Rocks and Soils'
