L.O. Can I collate ideas for a story?
Lets read the beginning of the story and summarise it.
The story is about a boy from modern England, going to Stone Age Britain.
How can we write our own version?
What would happen if Om came to Crumpsall lane?
'and I found myself falling down, down, down...'
What would Om see?
How is it strange and different to what she is used to?
Imagine her stepping out of the cave and into the playground. What is there?
Houses rather than forests, sound of cars, planes in the air, etc...
How would each moment of the story be different?
Pick an activity that the Stone Age people in the book do.
How do we do it differently now?
What would we do instead?
Example: During the Stone Age they cooked over a fire. Today we cook our food using a stove or oven.
Write a couple of sentences in the style of the Stone Age Boy. What would you want to show Om? Think about electronics, cooking, how to find food etc...
What would be the special thing you would want to show her instead of the cave paintings? What means a lot to you?
Example : books, games, cars...
...and I found myself falling down, down, down...
I woke up in strange looking cave, which didn't look like a cave at all! There was colourful images all over the walls, all different shapes and sizes. These images were surrounded by a language which I couldn't understand. I stood up and walked around, curiously investigating all the fascinating objects around the room. Then suddenly I bumped into a short, young boy with big round glasses. The boy introduced himself as Stone Age Boy, he kindly welcomed me to "Crumpsall Lane Primary School". He took me around this humongous cave which he called a "building". This building had many rooms, and there were other children running all around me, heading to different rooms to learn with their teachers. This was all so new and exciting! I wonder which class I could join in with?
