Good Morning Chestnut Class,
I hope you and your families are all well and that you have had enjoyable weekends.
In the early part of our week we will be learning about Prehistoric Beasts. We then jump into our time travelling machines and begin our journey in time to The Bronze Age.
Plus, along the way much like ancient man and our other ancestors we shall journey on the beautiful and magnificent South Downs. Amazing for us, to be able to make links with ancient man right on their hut steps and our doorsteps.
Happy Learning, Mr Gates and Ms Smith
Today, Ancient Beasts
You have an opportunity to learn about the amazing animals that walked our Neolithic lands, 1000's of years ago.
Task 1. as a beast hunter, is to learn facts about these creatures by reading the power point information. Once you have done this you can move onto, task 2. This is where you use some of the facts you have learnt to create fact files about these incredible animals.
Note, I have not included the Mammoth, we will be focussing on that particular extinct beast tomorrow.
I have also included some colouring in sheets, so you can spend some time colouring or drawing these fantastic beasts. I have to say, having learnt about these beasts, I am glad I can just pop to the supermarket for my lunch, rather than having to hunt one with a bit of flint on a stick.....
This week we are going to focus on prefix's. Here is the meaning of the word prefix. A prefix is a group of letters placed before the root of a word. For example, the word “unhappy” consists of the prefix “un-” [which means “not”] combined with the root (or stem) word “happy”; the word “unhappy” means “not happy.”
Today, your challenge is to match the prefix with the root word.
