A Trip to Chester

Year 4 step back in time

Despite the inclement weather, the Year 4 boys and girls had a memorable trip to Chester, known as Dewa in Roman times.

They marched with a centurion, formed a tortoise formation (testudo) and learned much more about life in the Roman army. They also discovered what Roman people liked to eat – dormice and fishgut sauce – and all about their personal hygiene!

Everyone enjoyed the day and it really helped to enhance their history studies.
