Year 3 learn more about history of Roman Empire on Chester museum visit

Preparatory School pupils got the learn more about the life and times of the Roman Empire on a recent visit.

The Year 3 pupils at Rydal Penrhos took a trip to the Grosvenor Museum in Chester on Wednesday, March 22, which was organised to aid them with their history topic on Romans.

They began their visit by looking around the two galleries to find out about Roman life and the fortress in Diva, before participating in a workshop in the museum, where they learnt about topics such as food, armour and homes during the time of the Caesars.

During the educational trip the group also got to dress up as Roman soldiers for a march through the streets of Chester to the amphitheatre, where they practised battle formations and learnt everything about the architectural structure that still stands in the city today.

Teacher Julie Woodthorpe, said: “The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience, in particular the tour with the Roman soldier when they loudly chanted battle songs as they marched through the streets.”
