Wolf Tribe (a.k.a. 7 Hadid) wins the day at the Celtic Harmony Camp on Friday 9th July 2021!
With perfect weather, Year 7 approached the Gates of Prehistory, led by one of the resident Celts to be greeted by another member of the tribe asking: “Do you come in peace?” To which the Year 7 army replied in one voice “NO!” ….Bloodcurdling….
Once entry to the camp was made, a full programme for the day was in store: A woodland celtic rune quest, fire making, torc making with celtic design face-painting, drumming in a celtic roundhouse and archery.
Gold Coins were awarded for pro-active participation and 7 Hadid won.
Well done to all for making this a great memorable day to conclude the year! Many thanks to Mrs Alliott, Head of Year 7, who had arranged this amazing experience for pupils to enjoy with friends to celebrate the end of a challenging year.

This is what Lilly-Jade Tennyson made of the day:
To end the year off with some fun, Year 7 got a chance to explore prehistory at Celtic Harmony. Throughout the day, we completed 5 activities; archery, drumming, fire lighting, face painting and a special quest. While completing these activities, each group had to earn gold coins to try and become the group at the end with the most amount of gold coins. Each activity was an opportunity to earn gold coins and understand prehistoric life. Archery taught us how to battle in prehistoric times; drumming taught us how to have fun; fire lighting taught us how to survive without a radiator or something to keep us warm and face painting taught us how to prepare for prehistoric battle. As for the quest, it was a fun little activity that helped us explore the Celtic Harmony grounds more freely. This was an extremely fun and educational day out and a great way to end the year. Thank you to Celtic Harmony for having us, a thank you to all the adults who came on the trip and a special thank you to the head of Year 7, Mrs.Alliot, for organising the trip and coming with us too!
And here’s what some pupils thought of it…
- Jacqui: I particularly enjoyed archery and making torcs but also all of the activities that we did throughout the day too. I enjoyed seeing everyone happy and enjoying themselves too because it made me so happy. It was also really nice to be outdoors in a wonderful setting because this is really good for your personal mindset.
- Emma: I loved the fire-making, the drum circle and the torcs. Also, the general environment was really lovely (the woodland setting). That was amazing and I’m glad I got to do them. It was a lovely break from the classroom.
- Arabella: I really enjoyed going through the woods to the different activities and doing different things that the Celts would have had to do.
- Amelia: Celtic Harmony was a wonderful experience. Although I had already been there before, I enjoyed the experience just as much. I had a lovely time with my form.
- Narin: I enjoyed all the activities there, although my favourites were archery, fire making and painting each other’s faces!
- Shayla: I loved the independence and how they let us do our own thing in our own way!
