Years 2 and 3 Roman Day at Norwich Castle

We had a fantastic day at Norwich Castle learning about the Celts and the Romans.  The day has certainly inspired the children with our new topic.

We met a Celtic lady and learnt about her way of life, we met a Roman soldier called Brutus, we made silver torcs and we handled real roman artefacts, which are more than 2000 years old!

The Celts hunting for food!

We met Brutus and he taught us all about Roman armour and their weapons.

Their shields were very heavy. 

Can you remember the word for how they moved in a group?

We made torcs, which belonged to the Celts.

We really enjoyed our Roman lunches. 

Thank you to parents for helping with this.

We learnt a lot about Roman pots and artefacts.  We had to work out which ones were authentic and which ones were replicas.

Whose side are you on?

We had a brilliant day, thank you to all the staff at Norwich Castle and to Mr Johnston for helping. 

A huge thank you too, to the Friends of Gresham Village School who gave us a substantial amount which helped make this trip possible.

The children were all really well behaved and the lady in the gift shop commented on the children's good behaviour and excellent manners, I was so pleased with them all.  On the train home, I heard the children say 'this is the best day ever', it really was!
