Year 4 Romans

On Monday the 14th of November, Year 4 went on a trip to the Verulamium Museum in St Albans. We went to learn all about the Romans, and we learnt that Verulamium used to be an old Roman town which was burnt down by Boudicca in the Celtic uprising in 60AD. We got to have a look at all the different displays, dress up as Romans and take part in a typical Roman market day, and visit the Hypocaust to see how the Romans used to heat their floors. We had a brilliant day and learned lots. Thanks to everyone who came with us!

Todd volunteered to try on a Roman cloak. We couldn’t tell who he was with the hood up!
Photo 4 – Charlotte with pot
We looked at lots of different Roman artefacts and tried to work out what they were used for.

Usman volunteered to try on a toga. Only the really rich Romans would have worn these.

This is our class sat outside the Hypocaust at the end of the day. We had a great time!

On Friday the 18th of November, Year 4 took our Roman shields and helmets out to the playground to try to form a tortoise formation. We made our shields and helmets in Design and Technology lessons and are really proud of them. We all chose the same design for our shields and used all 4 house colours so it represented Cedar Park. What do you think of them?
