Farewell to the Celts 24.10.13

This week, as a finale to our learning on the Celts, we have successfully completed our information texts "All About The Celts" and the children thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to share them at our Learning Exposure on Tuesday. We also showcased some of our other Topic learning and gave everyone a final chance to view the wonderful contributions sent in for our Family Home Learning Project.
We were also delighted to welcome Mr Gallia, who brought in a Neolithic axe head that was found on his land. It has been dated as being between 2500 - 3000 years old. The children were thrilled to actually touch a piece of history from far back in time. We were also re-introduced to 'Terry the Toad' who first appeared during our Harvest Festival celebrations. We would like to thank Mr Gallia for giving up his time to share all of this with us.
As a final farewell to the Celts, today we have been writing some acrostic poems and I would like to share one with you:
Torcs round their necks.
Houses high on a hill.
Enemies around.
Celts ready to fire.
Echoes come from everywhere.
Leader of the Clets.
Tough fighting Celts.
Shiny shields used for war.

We hope you have a relaxing holiday and we look forward to sharing more of our learning with you starting with our Global topic week about 'The Greeks' in our first week back.

A positive, purposeful and enthusiastic atmosphere
