Iron Age Roundhouses

In DT, Year 3 have been studying houses from the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We have set ourselves the task of creating our own model Iron Age village, like something that could be seen on display in a museum. Today, we created the first part of the model: our own Iron Age roundhouses. We used glue guns to secure our wooden posts into our house bases and then used Modroc to create our walls because we didn’t fancy using the real wattle and daub (which included a mix of mud and animal dung!). We then created our thatched roofs out of card and hay. We cannot wait for the next part of our design project.
