History - Weeks 1 and 2 - The Stone Age

Here is some learning all about a Stone Age settlement that was found on Orkney - a group of Scottish Islands.  The settlement is called Skara Brae.

The work should take two sessions

Your task is to read the information on the documents below, watch the video about what was discovered there and then pretend you are a news reporter.

 

You need to make a news report about what was discovered on Skara Brae - you need to write the script and you could even film yourself doing the news report.  Get a grown up to help you too.

 

You could even do some more of your own research about Stone Age times.
