The Stone Age Boy Planning Pack contains a two-week literacy unit of work for Year 3/4, based on the book 'Stone Age Boy'.



> 10 x lesson plans, forming a 2-week literacy unit

> Teacher guide including curriculum coverage

> Pupil resource sheets to go alongside the unit


NB: This planning pack does not include a copy of the Stone Age Boy book, which must be purchased separately.

The ten lessons in this unit aim to give children the opportunity to read and listen to the Stone Age Boy story a number of times.


In the first week, children will engage with the text through drama, discussion and debate in order to increase their familiarity with the structure of the story and they will have the opportunity to articulate ideas about the text using an increasingly varied vocabulary. There is also a grammar focus on using adverbials of time and place and a chance to develop thesaurus skills. 


In the second week, pupils will plan their own story based on the structure of Stone Age Boy and they will then have the opportunity to draft, edit and present their final narrative.


The English objectives covered in this unit are:

  • To ask and answer questions about a text
  • To use a thesaurus to improve my writing
  • To use adverbials of time and place
  • To prepare a short drama piece based on a text
  • To take part in a class debate
  • To make a story plan
  • To write my own narrative
  • To edit my writing
  • To make decisions about how to present my writing
