The Tree of Life


Fourth Class have been studying the Celts this month. We learned lots about their way of life but what interested us most was The Tree of Life. We learned that the Tree of Life possessed special powers. When the Celts cleared an area to settle in, they would leave a single tree in the centre which became known as the Tree of Life. The tree provided food, warmth and shelter  and was also used as a meeting place .
