Y3's Iron Age Experience

Year 3’s first school trip of the academic year was to Andover Museum of The Iron Age. Upon arrival, the children were straight into dressing up as a Celt and choosing an authentic Celtic name. They were given the opportunity to show off their existing knowledge and impressed the group leader, with the information they could give, including when the Iron Age started, when it ended and why. Once split into tribes, each group then got hands on experience of what life would have been like in Iron Age Britain. They learned about how to build a roundhouse (although on a much smaller scale), the importance of animals, weaving clothes and Iron Age food. The class thoroughly enjoyed their visit and behaved in true St Gabriel's style, albeit with a few menacing warrior poses to add to the authenticity of the experience.

Visitors to St Gabriel's quickly recognise that this is no ordinary school. Parents are always impressed by the sense of purpose and enthusiasm of the talented, committed staff and the confidence of the extremely happy pupils. We offer girls the opportunity for a seamless journey from Nursery through to Sixth Form, with our boys leaving us at the age of 11 for their senior schools.
