On Tuesday, Form 3 went 2000 years back in time...to the Roman Era!
They visited the Grosvenor Museum in Chester, where they discovered a wealth of Roman life through stones, explored the traditional methods of heating up a Roman bath house, making food from mussels, sausages and wine from grapes, and finally dug beneath the earth to discover how archaeologists found out about Roman lifestyle and culture.
They experienced a huge range of different Roman beliefs and practices, and the highlight of the tour was undoubtedly the march around the old Chester walls, led by a centurion who quickly had our class marching shoulder to shoulder, toe to toe, to the steady rhythm of "Sen, sen, sen dex sen!" (Left, left, left right left!). Their battle cries as they learnt about the gruesome games played in amphitheatres could be heard around the city.
A fantastic time was had by all pupils, and their goody bag of Roman treats ended the day brilliantly, allowing them to leave with lasting memories of the "rotten" Romans.
