Last week Y4 went on an interesting trip back in time to Roman Chester. We visited the DEWA centre in Chester and marched the streets like Roman soldiers did over 1600 years ago! The children thoroughly enjoyed getting into the ‘testudo’ position and watching Mrs Wagstaffe and Mrs Manning battle like gladiators in the amphitheater.
Later in the day we learnt all about the important role archaeologists have played in piecing together the history of Roman Chester through the artefacts they have found. During this the children enjoyed hearing about the interesting hygiene habits of the Roman people at the Roman baths.
Here are some pictures of our adventures!
