Years 5 & 6 really did live like Romans during this topic. Led by Mr McGarvey, pupils in years 5&6 cooked, ate, crafted and built just as the Romans did cooking up and tasting venison, rabbit stew and nettle soup and whittling spears, making fires and building shelters and of course catapults in case the time came to attack!
Pupils showed off their skills, talents and enthusiasm for their History and Outdoor learning and really got involved!
A great day had by all!
After this pupils attended a trip to Wall – A Roman site in Lichfield. Letocetum is an of ancient Roman bath site and was an important staging post for the military. Owned by the National Trust, there was also a museum which houses artefacts that have been excavated from the site over a long period of time. There were some truly incredible artefacts!
The staff who led us in activities for the day were brilliant, they answered all of our questions, were full of facts and we learned a lot from them!
It was lovely to hear from them when we got back to school.
‘The children were well behaved and they asked sensible questions or made relevant comments and were a credit to your school. It was lovely to hear that the children had much to say about the actual village of Wall and the Village Hall. It all adds to the experience.’ Julie ‘The friends of Letocetum’
Well done children and Thank you for a wonderful week!
