In early May Year 4 visited Verulamium Museum, St Albans as part of their Creative Curriculum topic, The Romans.
The trip, and the topic generally, highlighted the impact of the Romans on Britain. Verulamium was the third largest city of Roman Britain and the museum stands on the site of the Roman town.
The children were able to handle real Roman artefacts and learnt how the people of Roman Verulamium lived, built their homes, cooked and what they ate. They also saw a hypocaust, a Roman central heating system and the mosaics covering it.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the trip, including the journey on a double decker bus! … and now know a lot more about the Romans too.
