Year 3: Celts Topic Launch

Today was the launch of our new topic: The Celts!!
To start children watched a special episode (with a familiar host!) of Through the Keyhole, where a house was explored. Pupils needed to listen to the clues and do research to find out whose house it was: Queen Boudicca’s!
After in maths pupils ordered the Iron Age timeline cards and this afternoon pupils created their own Celtic Roundhouse. We had human wooden posts, till roll used as wattle and post it notes as the daub. We had great fun (especially as the wind kept carrying everything away!)
In class they then wrote down what they did step by step.

Pupils have given me lots of ideas for learning opportunities in this topic so I’m sure they’ll have lots of fun over the next few weeks.

See you tomorrow!
