Reception – Iron Age shields

Reception are taking their second week down a 12,000-year walk through history into the Iron Ages. Today’s learning was based on Celts and the items they took into battle. We discovered not all Celts took swords, shields or even clothing into battle. Reception found this very funny! In literacy we explored shields and why Celts used them. We discovered what materials were available and the individual patterns on shields. Reception then used their imagination to design their own shields. We then extended our learning into our art lesson by making our shield design using a range of junk modelling materials.
