Year 4 Trip to Verulamium

Year 4 enjoyed a fantastic day at Verulamium discovering all about the Romans!

The children dressed up as Romans, looked at what daily life was like in the forum, traded fruit and vegetables in the market and handled various pieces of Roman household pots, and equipment, even a skin peeling device!

They were spooked by skeletons in their coffins and amazed by the tesserae in some of the floor tiling seen in a real Roman Villa floor.

A tour of the museum help us to see what Roman men and women did for a living and what it would have been like to have lived in these times.

We all enjoyed a lovely day out and are looking forward to our Roman Day later in the term.
