The Year 4 pupils took a trip to Ribchester Roman Museum to learn more about their History topic: The Romans. The museum really brought the Roman period to life, giving them the opportunity to handle Roman artefacts, excavated from local grounds, as well as visiting the ruins of a granary and bathhouse.
A definite highlight of the day was when our pupils dressed in real Roman armour. They particularly enjoyed practising their ‘scary’ soldier faces, whilst marching up and down the museum carrying a replica sword and shield! They also tried on different helmets, learning why different Roman soldiers wore certain helmets and what these helmets represented.
In the afternoon, the pupils spent time exploring the museum, gathering even more facts about the Roman era to help aid their classwork. The trip culminated with a well-deserved play on the local adventure playground.
