Y4 visit to Chester 18.9.18

Lesson: History

Class: Y4 Year: 2018 - 2019

This half term our Learning Challenge question is: Why were the Romans so powerful? To help us to find out the answer, we visited Chester on Tuesday 18th September to take part in a Roman Soldier Patrol and experience the Dewa Centre.

The Roman Soldier was incredibly strict! He took us on a walk around the streets of Chester - visiting the Roman Gardens and the Ampitheatre. We used our shields to make a 'tortoise shell', which the Roman soldiers would have used to help to protect themselves in battle.

In the Dewa Centre, we were transported back in history to the Roman times. Our discoveries helped us to understand just why the Romans are referred to as being rotten.... shared baths, 'poo sponges' and disgusting food!

We have started using our learning back in class and have written fantastic recounts about our visit - some examples are coming soon!
