Year 3 – Iron Age Matt

November 26, 2020

On Friday 19th November, Year 3 welcomed Iron Age Matt (Matt Russell) to school.  He came to give the children an insight into what life was like for the Iron Age people and explained how the hierarchy of society was organised in Celtic tribes.
The children loved the hands-on experience, whilst following the Covid guidelines, of handling different artefacts and putting their learning into context.
This was certainly a great way to start our topic and to help the children answer the key question of ‘Which Age Rocks?’.  They will now be comparing the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages to decide which period of history they thought was the best and why.
