Year 4 – Trip to the Verulamium Museum

On Thursday Year 4 went on their first school trip of the year to Verulamium Museum in St Albans. As one of the most well excavated Roman towns in Britain, this trip launched Year 4’s Romans topic with a look at the real world legacy of Rome in Britain. We participated in a workshop where the children were able to hold and explore both real artefacts and replicas, not to mention the opportunity to try out some authentic Roman clothing. We toured the museum’s galleries and viewed and sketched the spectacular mosaics. After a wonderful lunch in the park, we went over the ruins of the Amphitheatre and market. It was like seeing an ancient O2 arena and gave us a first-hand feel of life in Roman Britain. Thank you so much to all our parent volunteers, who helped the day run smoothly and made it enjoyable for all.
