History – Home Learning

Our learning for today is to understand what Stone Age artefacts tell us about this period of time.

See below for the answer

How did you do?

According to scientists’ trilobites were on earth before dinosaurs. After the extinction of the dinosaurs came Ice Age animals such as the wholly mammoth. It is believed that early humans appeared around the end of the Ice Age period.


Check the information below and add any information (in green pen) that you did have in your work.

How long have people been on Earth for?

People have been on earth for about 3 million years AFTER the dinosaurs. The first (Homo sapiens) were around 200,000 years ago and probably came from Africa and were travellers. They did not live in one place and did not farm.

What might these people have eaten?

They foraged and collected, leaves, fruits, nuts, vegetables and hunted animals. They were known as HUNTER- GATHERERS.

What might the weather have been like in Britain millions of years ago?

That climate used to be much colder and that Britain and much of Europe used to be covered in ice so life was very difficult.

Why might life have been difficult?

The first people arrived in Britain at the end of the last Ice Age. They travelled, by foot, across Europe.

Why might they have travelled by foot?

 The only mode of transport was walking and at this time Britain was joined to Europe.

How do we know all of this information about the Stone Age?

Archaeologist have discovered objects (stone, bone, antler tools), bones/skeletons, cave paintings, pottery, monuments. Explain that these pieces of evidence are also known as artefacts. Explain that we do not know everything about them because it was so long ago, and they did not write in the way that we do now. They lived in caves or in camps.


Explain the importance of artefacts.

English Home Learning – 25th November

Hi Year 3!

Today we are going to be working on a new feature in writing you’re expected to start using in Year 3: paragraphs!

Paragraphs are groups of sentences linked together by a theme or idea. It helps break down big bits of writing into smaller, easier-to-follow chunks.

BBC Bitesize – What are paragraphs?

If we didn’t have have paragraphs, our writing would look like Slide 2 below: far too chunky and not very enjoyable to read! Look at my revised version on Slide 3. Much better!

Your news article is going to have 4 paragraphs and each paragraph is going to do something different. This way, our audience reads through the article flowing from one point to the next.


For your activity today, you need to group sentences together into paragraphs. Read the slides below to help guide you.

Modelled Answer

For example, in the activity below, sentence (1) and sentence (4) are both linked because they both talk about a mysterious person who we don’t know much about yet. So, I think they will be in the same paragraph.

Share your work!

Email your work to year3@sesldonprimary.org.uk so that your teacher can give you feedback!
