R8 Trip to the Celtic Roundhouse at St Fagans

We learnt so much on our trip to visit the Iron Age roundhouses in St Fagan’s.  R8 were fascinated by Taran, our Celtic guide. We enjoyed hearing about life as an Iron Age child. We all decided that life is much easier now!

We were all able to touch a replica flint and the toys that children in the Iron Age would have played with. We also had to decide what foods the Celts ate…did they eat bananas and chocolate?  We learnt that they had to grind their own grain to make bread and we all had a go – a very hands-on job!

Our highlight was the opportunity to weave like the Celts. A very busy morning that will be really helpful when we’re back in the classroom.  Well done, R8!
