Year 3 and 4 children enjoyed a visit to St Fagans National Museum of History on Tuesday 10th September as an introduction to their new topic, ‘Tribal Tales’. They are learning about the period of history stretching from the Stone Age to the Iron Age and they took part in hands-on workshops to get a real sense of how people may have lived in those times.
They visited a Celtic roundhouse where they were able to handle replicas of artefacts, Iron age weapons and they had a go at weaving on a loom. It gave a real insight into how different life was like in the Iron age.
They also took part in a workshop where they saw a Celtic grave and thought about what evidence archaeologists use in order to get a better picture of the past.
The children were also able to explore the rest of the wonderful grounds of St. Fagans. They thoroughly enjoyed their day out.
