A Preparatory School year group got the opportunity to find out more about the life and times of the Roman Empire on a recent visit.
The Year 3 contingent at Rydal Penrhos took a trip to the Grosvenor Museum in Chester on Wednesday, March 20, which was organised to aid them with their history topic on Romans.
They began the day with the Roman Soldier Tour, dressing in replica armour and marching through the streets to the Roman amphitheatre where they practiced battle formations and learned about the life of a soldier during one of the most significant time-periods in human history.
This was followed by a visit to the museum galleries, where they were able to see real artefacts, which have been excavated by archaeologists and learn more about Roman life.
Following this, they attended a workshop where each pupil in attendance took part in different activities to learn about aspects of Roman life such as food and homes.
Prep School Head Alison Hind, said: “We are always looking for ways to enhance the learning of each child under our care here at Rydal Penrhos, and our annual Year 3 trip to the Chester Roman Experience is something that really captures the imagination.
“Getting a more in-depth look at their history topic and to witness for themselves some artefacts from the Roman era will undoubtedly boost their overall knowledge of the topic considerably, and I would like to thank teacher Julie Woodthorpe for arranging another wonderful trip.”
