Harts of Oak Celtic Roundhouse

Celtic Roundhouse Harts of Oaka>Whilst building our third Roundhouse for a School we are putting together a series of learning pods which teach how the building is made and where the materials come from.

From the Start we teach about Celtic life and the concept of a history timeline. The Children are reminded that people used to live without electricity, no Xbox, no mobile phone, no TV and no light bulbs - so what did they do in their spare time? maybe talk and tell stories, make music, although spare time was probably rare.

 

The hunter supplied meat and everyone in the Celtic tribe would have a role, we try to teach our 'tribe' to wrok together as the building and learning progress and it really does sink in when you are actually in the living history.
