Cross-curricular—History

Life in Medieval Ireland was very

different from today. Most people

lived in towns, villages or within

town walls, centred around

a castle. Villages consisted of

houses, gardens, orchards, fields

where many people worked, and

other buildings.

Write a list of five features found in a Medieval Irish village, in joined writing.

Most people worked at a trade or craft. These included goldsmiths,

carpenters, blacksmiths, butchers and fish sellers. Other trades

included bakers, tailors, shoemakers, coopers, tanners and weavers.

air. It reduces oxygen which living things

need to breathe. Carbon monoxide comes

from vehicles and burning fossil fuels.
