 Summer Term 2017

During the Summer Term 2017, the children will be working on the 'Myths and Legends' topic, which has a history focus and teaches children about The Iron
Age Celts from c. 600 BC - 50 AD.

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. They will write newspaper reports and a Haiku poem using the myth ‘The Girl from Llyn y Fan Fach’ as inspiration. There will be many opportunities for the children to develop their oracy skills throughout this topic, including through the use of debate and by retelling Celtic stories, including that of Boudicca, through drama.

Children will study the daily of the Iron Age Celts and will investigate the locations in Wales in which they lived and why.

By the end of the project, the children will apply their skills and understanding by designing and creating a house for a Celtic warrior, considering: where to position it, the best materials to use, how to ensure the house allows light to pass through during the daytime and how to soundproof it accordingly.

In order to support the children in their learning, the children will be visiting Castell Henllys:
