Reviewed by Seán from Third Class: This was an interesting activity.
The story reminded me of what I learned about Egyptian burials,
There were a lot of steps and I found it a bit complicated.
I didn’t think it was as interesting as making fire and bread
in the other Iron Age activity from the BBC website HERE

We played this game and we learned
how they made fire,
and spun wool in the Iron Age..
Reviewed by Seán from 3rd Class. I enjoyed learning how to make fire and make bread like they did in the Iron Age. I preferred this activity to the one where you see how an Iron Age chariot is built. That activity is HERE
Review by Seán: I visited this activity. I know a bit about the Iron Age already so I felt I didn’t learn anything new. The activity is very simple and not terribly fun.

Review by Leon: I enjoyed this activity. It was fun. But I thought the Druid’s Story was a bit weird. I am in third and I think it might be a scary activity for younger children (say second class) because there is a bog body and an animal sacrifice in it. It is important to remember that this activity is set in Wales not Ireland. There will be similarities but there are also differences. Though Roman graves were found in Bray, the Romans never invaded Ireland.
This clever animation tells us about
the arrival of the Celts in Ireland.
It also explains how the use of
the fulacht fia for cooking.
4th Class Students Firies National School, Co Kerry
wrote, animated, filmed and performed this animation
with the help of Katherine Mulligan, Firies National School,
Kerry County Council Arts Office, The Arts Council of Ireland
and Kerry Filmmaker in Residence Lisa Fingleton.
We think it is amazing.
