To introduce this Half-Term's topic about the Iron Age, Year 3 have been learning about the Celts, who lived in Britain at that time. We looked at different Celtic 'Icovellavna' (knot art) and learned how to draw a traditional triangular design called a 'Triquetra'. We then followed a recipe for shortbread - which included measuring and mixing flour, sugar and butter, and created our own shortbread Triquetra.
We looked at some examples of genuine pottery from the Stone Age. We analysed the type of patterns and considered the tools that may have been used by Stone Age artists (e.g. sticks, bones & leaves). After that we produced a technical design for our Stone Age pots. We created our pots using modelling clay and tools that we found once dried, we evaluated our designs by identifying the strengths and areas for development.
