Trip to Verulamium
On Tuesday 12th March, Year 4 travelled back to the time of the Ancient Romans in Britain. We visited the Verulamium Roman museum In St Albans, where we all had the chance to dress up as Ancient Romans and experience what it might have been like to visit a Roman marketplace. The children enjoyed the chance to handle and explore replicas of some of the real artefacts contained in the museum and were fascinated by some of the tools and equipment used everyday by the Romans who lived in ancient Verulamium. The children also had time to explore the museum galleries to find out more about life in Roman Britain – the mosaics and plaster wall paintings were a particular hit with the children. Despite the rain, the year group walked to visit the nearby hypocaust ruins, which also house an intact Roman mosaic in situ. This was a fantastic way to end a great day which definitely enhanced the children’s history learning about the Romans.
