The children in Year 4 went on an exciting visit to Verulamium Museum and the Roman Theatre, on Wednesday 11th October. We took part in a Roman workshop and had the opportunity to investigate different artefacts from the Roman city of Verulamium. We found out about how Romans cooked, dined, washed and how they built.
We then explored the Museum and found out lots of interesting facts. We were fascinated by the Roman mosaics that we saw and have begun to make our own mosaic pictures back at school.
We enjoyed a picnic lunch in the park and then visited the Hypocaust, which is an underground heating system that the Romans designed. The floor was covered by another beautiful mosaic.
Finally, we visited the remains of the Roman Theatre, shops and town house.
We had a great day and it really helped to bring our History topic about Roman Britain to life! We would like to thank all of the parents who volunteered to accompany Beech and Hazel classes on this lovely day out!
