Hands-on-history at Celtic Harmony Camp
Year 3 children were able to put all their learning about Celtic Culture into action with a trip to Celtic Harmony Camp in Brickendon this week. They explored the impressive roundhouses and experienced what it was like to be in a real Celtic settlement; taking part in craft activities such as weaving headdresses and learning how to be warriors. The pupils also went on a special woodland quest, following clues and working out riddles.
"My favourite part of the day was the warrior training because I loved fighting the Romans (our teachers!)" says Bertie. Noah's highlight was the archery workshop: "I was happy getting bullseye on the first go." "Best of all was the woad face painting," adds Esme, "we learnt about the reason it was blue, and I painted my friend's face."
