Our Theme this term will be

The Celts.

This project has a history focus and teaches children about The Iron Age Celts from c. 600 BC - 50 AD and how over the 500 or so years leading up to the first Roman invasion a Celtic culture established itself throughout Wales. At the heart of this project children read, re-tell and write Celtic myths and legends and create their own in the style of the Celtic storytellers. Children also learn additional skills of recording and recounting historical information using a range of historical source materials.

 

In the Innovate Stage children apply their skills and understanding by planning and organising a Celtic Druid ceremony to decide the next village chief.

In this project the children will learn

• About the chronological order of Celtic history including significant events and historical figures; 

• About the everyday lives of the Celts including important aspects of their lives including war, farming, homes and the role of women and children;

• About the values and beliefs of the Celts including the roles of Druids, Gods and Goddesses’; 

• About features of myths and legends and how to write their own;

• How to use a range of historical source material for enquiry;

• About the role of Celtic craftspeople and the importance of pattern in the Celtic culture;

• How to use shape, pattern and symmetry in maths and art and design.
