Key Information

Spring Term 1


Our Humanities topic for this half term is called Pwy sy'n dod? (Who is coming?)

In this topic, children will visit either an Iron Age museum or a reconstructed settlement to find out what life was like for the Celts in the Iron Age. Back in the classroom, they’ll find out more about Celtic family life, childhood, leadership, the Druids and the Otherworld. Outside, they’ll gather mud, clay, twigs and straw to build mini roundhouses and stoke the flames of a fire pit as they prepare an Iron Age feast. They’ll act as Celts, choreographing a slow-motion fight sequence between Celtic warriors, dressing up in classic Iron Age fashions and modelling and decorating sacrificial gifts for the Druid gods out of clay. Then it’s back to the future where they’ll act as archaeologists, tracking down Iron Age artefacts and discovering the mysteries of bog bodies. At the end of the project, they’ll reflect on what they have learned about the Celts and create an informative display. They’ll also write imaginative accounts of the ruthless Roman invasion of Britain from a Celt’s perspective.
