Activity Overview:

Teaching Prehistory outside the classroom.

Celtic Harmony and The Council for Learning Outside the Classroom have come together to design a day course for teachers to support planning and delivering an engaging Prehistory topic at KS2 exploring the changes in Britain from Stone, Bronze to Iron Age. Celtic Harmony Camp is an ideal location to inspire your knowledge and understanding of the topic, set in beautiful Hertfordshire woodland in a reconstructed Prehistory settlement with seven roundhouses. Celtic Harmony’s award winning outdoor prehistory education programme has been running for twenty years, the charity was a finalist in the School Travel Awards ‘Best Venue for History Learning’ in 2017 and 2018.

Outline Programme:

  • Interactive Talks on Stone, Bronze and Iron Age Britain with artefact handling by Archaeologist Keith Fitzpatrick Matthews
  • Prehistory Hands-on Resources, Timeline and Celtic Harmony work in experiential learning
  • Primitive Skills Workshops : Flint knapping and cordage making, native Herbs and natural dyeing, carding fleece and weaving on warp weighted looms.

The day will also include a tour of Celtic Harmony Camp, prehistory settlement, exploring the roundhouses and surrounding woodland.

The Prehistory Inset event is designed to enable you to:

  • Enhance your subject knowledge
  • Increase your confidence in teaching the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages.
  • Provide curriculum-linked activities and resources, which you can take back to the classroom.
