Year 4 had an amazing day at Murton Park.
We started the day by getting dressed up as Romans and practising how to hold our spears and shields correctly.
Then, Flavia took us on a tour around the site. Many children were shocked to hear that the Romans used a wooden stick with a sponge on to wipe their bums!
The children were given the opportunity to practise fighting with weapons which they all really enjoyed.
They also signed a contract to say that they would be a Roman for the next 25 years and made a clay oil lamp.
The children really enjoyed finding out about different weapons.
Finally, the Romans (children) chased a Celt away from the fort.
Thank you so much to all the children who were an absolute credit to their parents/carers and the school. We would also like to take the opportunity to thank all the adults who came with us and made it possible.
