During the last week of term the children of both Key Stage two classes went back in time to a Celtic Village situated near Hertford. The day began with the children separating into 2 tribes. In their respective tribes the children engaged in various activites to try and win coins. These included painting distinctive celtic symbols, making rope and head dresses out of straw, archery and a forest trail. Towards the end of the day we learned about the weapons used by the Celtic Tribes and engaged in a battle with some Roman invaders!
The day ended with a wonderful story in the Celtic roundhouse told by Ewain. It was seriously one of the most natural and engaging educational days the children have participated in. They absolutely loved it and so did the teachers!!! We also loved the natural surroundings and the eco toilets!
