Traders (Trading in the afternoon has two parts:)

Part 1: your class will swap real artefacts as they role play as Iron Age characters and use numerical problem solving in the trading game to barter for a wide range of goods.

Part 2: your pupils will enjoy Trading with Celtic coins, by swapping their pocket money for Catuvellaunni coins to trade for the more precious produce in the shop, with a wide range of heritage produce supporting local craftsmen.

This exciting day will help you work towards many curricular outcomes. Iron Age hill forts: tribal kingdoms,farming,art and culture.
