I hope that you are well and that you have had a nice weekend.
Thank you to everyone who has been vert supportive during the first week. It’s quite a challenge to get the children signed up for online learning and can sometimes be an even bigger challenge to make sure they complete the work that has been set – I know as I’m a parent too.

Stone Age Reading Comprehension
A hearty and warming Stone Age stew is a welcome luxury after a long day of hunting and gathering.
First, you will need to prepare the stock. For a flavoursome and rich-tasting stock, you must use the finest and freshest herbs so scavenge the woods for juniper berries, nettle leaves, sunflower seeds and hazelnuts. Add them to water in a large stone pot and drop in some red-hot stones to heat the mixture. Why not include some mammoth blood to give the stock a deep, earthy flavour?
Next, roast today’s catch over the fire on a spit. When blackened, chop it into small pieces and add it into your stock. Keep stirring so that your stew does not congeal. Serve piping hot with a fresh lump of bone on the side.
- What do you think the word ‘congeal’ means in this text?
- Which creature’s blood would give this stock a deep, earthy flavour?
- How does the author make this stew sound appealing?
- How does this stew compare to food we eat today?
- What helps to heat the mixture?
- Would you like to try this soup? Why? Why not?
