Iron Age Day

Today, Year 3 had a fantastic time learning all about the Iron Age which followed on from our topic 'Yabba Dabba Doo' where we have been learning all about the Stone and Bronze Age. We started off the day with an assembly, where Iron Age Matt taught the children all about weapons, clothes and tools that would have been used in this era. The children even got to become warriors and chiefs as they learnt all about village life!

After this, the children learnt all about the materials used, including animal skins and chain mail, which they got to touch. This helped them to understand more about what life would have been like during the Iron Age.

In the afternoon, everyone took part in warrior training which the children thoroughly enjoyed. We even got to make our own shields and spears! We will be finishing these off in the next few weeks and then the children will be able to take them home to show you their masterpieces.

Overall, we had a jam-packed and thrilling day. Thank you to everyone for organising costumes for the children - they looked amazing! Have a look at some of the pictures we took. We hope they have captured the fun we had.
