Iron Age Immerions Day
Year 1 had an Iron Age Immersion Day to experience the Celtic lifestyle for ourselves. We came dressed up as Celts after doing our research on what they wore.
We all visited the Celtic hut and spoke about how it was built and what was used to build it. The Celts lived in tribes in hill-forts for protection. They had no heating or electricity and had to make a fire for light and warmth, as well as to cook their food.
‘Life was very hard for the Celts!’, Harry noted.
As our adults made oat cakes for us to try, we spoke about the Celtic diet and what they ate.
We also found out that we know about the Celts due to the work of archaeologists. We had a go at digging for artefacts ourselves. After finding an artefact, we spoke about what it might be and what it may have been use for. Our most interesting find was the Snettisham torc, Battersea Shield and Waterloo Helmet.
