Years 3 and 4 meet some ‘Real Romans’

Leave a comment

On Tuesday Years 3 and 4 enjoyed a fantastic trip to Norwich Castle, where they travelled back in time to the Roman period. The pupils met a Roman soldier, complete with armour and weapons, and even had a go at performing in a Roman battle. They met an Iceni tribe member and understood how and why the Iceni’s way of life was different to that of the Romans. The pupils handled some real Roman objects and were able to categorise them and see how they compared with present-day objects. The Roman toilet paper was a real source of amusement!

The children had great fun making an Iceni torc (necklace) and looked at some real ones  in the castle’s display cabinets. The day really enhanced the pupil’s understanding of our current Romans history topic and all the boys and girls enjoyed the day immensely.  See the complete gallery of pictures from the day here. Look out for  a photo of the children’s fabulous holiday homework on Romans on the blog on Sunday.
