Castle Trip

Today we went on our trip to Colcester Castle. We were very excited to see it, with some of being amazed to find it hidden behind some shops.

We spent time looking at the exhibits (we found a reconstruction of a roundhouse just like the one we made in class) and tried on lots of different outfits from different time periods.

Then we learnt about the construction of a Roman villa by making one ourselves.

We managed the structure, but where not very good at getting our painted wall pattern right.

Finally we visited the vaults to find more about the Roman invasion.

A huge thank you to all the adults who made the trip possible.
