Years 3 and 4 visit Colchester Castle
Classes 3 and 4, as part of their topic on the Romans, visited Colchester Castle on 3rd November. Each class had a workshop where they built a Celtic roundhouse and a Roman villa. We also had a story tour of the vaults where we found out lots of interesting facts about the Romans in Colchester and the revolt led by Boudicca. We spent some time in the Roman rooms sketching artefacts and trying on Celtic clothes and Roman soldier’s armour, which was very heavy! All the children and adults enjoyed the day and learnt a lot about the Romans in Britain.
