Boudicca Warrior Day

Activity Overview

Bring your Celts and Romans topic to life at the UK’s largest reconstructed Iron Age settlement, as seen in Horrible Histories: The Movie!

The Romans are coming and Boudicca has called on all Celts to fight! Pupils work in small teams of approximately 15-20 pupils and complete challenges to earn Catavelauni gold coins:

  • Train as a Celtic Warrior and defeat the Romans!
  • Learn the art of Archery
  • Explore the woods on Boudicca’s Quest
  • Craft your own Warrior Headbands and War Paint your Clan
  • Trade and Barter

Trading has two parts:

Part 1: your class will swap real artefacts as they role play as Celtic characters and use numerical problem solving
Part 2: your pupils will enjoy swapping their pocket money for Celtic gold coins to trade for the more precious produce in the shop

The day ends with Boudicca’s announcement of the winning Clan in the Chieftain Roundhouse.

“Weapons and quest helped knowledge. Archery really engaged the children with topic.” Mercedes Law, The Hyde, Feb 2020
