Learning, achieving, working together

The Romans

During this topic the children learnt about the Romans.  They visited St Albans Cathedral and took part in a Roman banquet.  They learnt all about the first English martyr St Alban and saw his shrine in the cathedral.  The children really enjoyed the blanket dig and asking questions to a real life Roman soldier.  Back at school we investigated what Romans ate by examining their poo.
