In school, we are learning how to use the ACE dictionary to look up spellings. You probably don't have an ACE dictionary at home, so I have copied the page where you look up words. Use this to find the correct page number for the misspelt words on the worksheet below. Then you can use a normal dictionary (or an online one) to look up the correct spellings.
Practise your joined handwriting. We are working on the letters b and p.

Reread the text from Stone Age boy today. What can you find out about life in the Stone Age from these pages in the book?
Write some sentences about the everyday tasks carried out by Stone Age people using the information you have learnt from this book. Some of this is written in the present tense. Change the sentences to the past tense, taking care to spell words ending in -ed correctly.
