This week we visited Celtic Harmony Camp near Hertford to experience a Warrior Day!
Upon arriving we were greeted by Owen a man from the Iron Age who led us to the camp, where we had to declare peace in order to be allowed entry! Once safely inside a round house (complete with fire) we were separated into two groups and we were given a name for our group; The Wolves and The Bears.
During the day we took part in lots of activities; including archery, making headbands, Celtic warrior face paint, a quest in the forest to solve riddles and find clues to help us solve a problem, warrior skills and a weaving activity. We earned points (gold coin) for team work, listening and performance on each activity.
Year 3 found themselves completely immersed in this fun but educational day at the camp and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I’m sure that you will agree that we all looked the part!
I would like to say a special thank you to Ms Coupland and Mrs Schofield for supporting us on this trip and joining in on all the activities to help the teams earn extra points!
This week I would like the children to write a recount about our visit to Celtic Harmony on the double sided sheet provided. This will be used as part of out topic learning and put into our topic books but it will also support our English writing next week when we begin to look closely at the book ‘Traction Man is Here’ as we will writing recounts of Traction Man’s adventures.
The children should also practise their week 2 spelling, 4 time tables and read over the weekend please.
The children also led a beautiful Remembrance Day assembly today – I was so proud so how they all read and sang – thank you for coming to support, I’m sure you will agree that they did a great job. Well done Y3.
Have a lovely weekend,
