Guided reading – UG, Boy Genius of the Stone Age (SHOULD TASK)

LO: to deduce, infer or interpret information, events or ideas from texts

SC1: I can interpret a characters feelings from the information in the text

SC2: I can use visual cues to infer why a character feels or acts in a certain way

SC3: I can deduce information from the information I have in the text



1. How did Ug know he had grown?

2. What tells us that Ug is not totally happy with Stone Age life?

3. Why did Ug’s dad seem annoyed that Ug was grumbling about his trousers?

4. Why is it important that Ug’s dad writes ‘Stone Age’ on the wall?

Challenge: Who is your favourite character and why? Do you think the author wanted you to choose this character?

9:30 – 10.30


LO: to understand how to measure mass in kilograms and grams

SC1: I can read scales in mixed units (grams and kilograms)

SC2: I can read intervals on scales by dividing

SC2: I can add grams and kilograms 

Watch my tutorial to find out what we are doing today!




Green Chillies – Watch my video and we will work through the questions together.




Orange Chillies – Use your dividing skills to work out what each interval is work and what weight the arrow is pointing to.

Red Chillies – use your explanation skills to explain how you work out what each interval is worth and how you find the answer to the questions.


Mastery activity – 3 chilli levels. This time, rather than reading a scale that is given to you, demonstrate your understanding by labelling the scales and showing where the measurement would be.

EXTENSION (Optional):

Have a go at grams adding/subtracting dice game


Break time/snack time

Exercise – e.g. mindfulness yoga, fresh air in the garden, run up and down the stairs seeing if you can get faster every time!

Yu need to keep your body active so that your brain can keep active too.

11:00 – 12.00


LO: to predict a character’s thoughts and speech

SC1: I can write in the format of speech bubbles or a script to convey characters’ ideas

SC2: I can predict what characters might say and explain why

SC3: I can define and explain basic words in detail

Watch my tutorial to find out what we are doing today.




Create a possible conversation between Dug and Dugs.

Think about… What has Ug been doing today and how might they be recalling it? How did they feel about it? You might refer to his lack of satisfaction in his trousers or his food, about his attempt at playing games with the other children or his questions about Neanderthals.

Green chillies watch my video to guide you through the task:






Create a list that could span from the basic (fire, potato, book) to the high-tech (smartphone, tablet, satellite). How would you explain it to someone from the Stone Age?

Green Chillies: Choose one word from the list and create a definition that Dug and Dugs might begin to understand. You could use a dictionary to help you.

Orange Chillies: Choose two words from the list and create a definition that Dug and Dugs might begin to understand.

Red Chillies: Choose three words from the list and create a definition that Dug and Dugs might begin to understand.

EXTENSION (optional):

How do you think Dug and Dugs would react to your definition? Based on our current understanding of the character, do you think they would react in the same way or would their responses differ? What do we look for in an effective definition or explanation? (write short paragraph to explain your thinking)
