In early 2014 we began a project with Scholes Primary School near Holmfirth to create a class-sized Celtic roundhouse.

The intention was for the children to build it under instruction, and that it would be as authentic as practically possible. The children would learn how to map out and level the building site, safely move and position large timbers, to use the tools safely to work those timbers and to problem solve the building process. Ultimately they will have an outstanding, hands-on learning opportunity and an all weather outdoor classroom large enough to accommodate at least 30 children.

This blog catalogues the planning and building process, warts and all...

If you would like us to facilitate a similar project with your children, please get in touch.
