On Friday 12th May 2017 Years 3 and 4 enjoyed a fantastic day exploring the ruins at Wroxeter, Roman City.
The children were treated to experiencing a day in the life of a Roman citizen in Roman Britain. Upon arrival, the children were greeted by Kirsty, our fantastically-informed guide for the day. We were then ushered out into the drizzle to learn about the different parts of the Roman baths. Do you know what a basilica was used as? Ask Year 3 or Year 4, they do!
We then went into a discovery education room which was filled floor to ceiling with artefacts from the Roman times. We made a mosaic, laid Roman roof tiles, ground wheat in a mortarium and touched artefacts excavated at Wroxeter ground.
After that, we had time to enjoy our delicious packed lunches and have a quick play in the sunshine.
Soon it was time to explore the reconstructed Roman villa. The villa was made using only materials and equipment that would have been found in Roman times.
All that was left to do now was to experience Roman clothes, and then hop on our coach back to school.
With the help of some late sunshine and a fantastic guide, it proved to be a fun and varied experience for all.
