On Thursday the 6th December, Year 4 children, visited Colchester Castle to end their Roman history topic. The children were very excited to visit the castle and once they arrived they had opportunities to make a Celtic roundhouse and a Roman villa, along with looking at artefacts in the museum and visiting the vaults!
We were all excited on the bus, on our way to the castle!
Finally we arrived!
All classes got to spend time finding out about the romans in the museum; trying on clothes, watching tutorials and looking at artefacts.
There was a lot to look at.
