Celtic knots – Forest schools

We’re harking back to Europe’s Iron Age over the next two weeks in 4H with an in-depth celebration of the Celts.

We have discussed the impact of the Roman Empire on the traditions and culture of the Celts. Today we began looking at Celtic knot patterns which evolved from use in ‘wode’ body paint to greater significance in the 5th Century onwards.

Forest Schools in Year 6

Today we received a fantastic delivery of waterproof clothing for UKS2. 6KH thought that WE should be the first to try them out!

We played a great field game and then created some Blitz-inspired abstract art on our giant pieces of paper! What a great afternoon!

Don’t we look smart in our new waterproofs!

Huge thanks to the Ernest Cook Trust who provided the money for waterproofs.
