Year 4 thoroughly enjoyed the History trip to Colchester Castle on Tuesday. We all found it extremely enjoyable. Firstly we went upstairs to build a Roundhouse and a Roman Villa. We looked at a video and then we made them. After that we had a snack and play outside the castle. Then we went back inside to go into the vault. The vault was made in Roman times, it was under the castle. We learn lots of facts – like Boudicca burnt down lots of temples like the one in St Albans and the one in Colchester for revenge. We also went into the prisons. There were bloodstains on the floor and the keys to the cell, speakers and a monitor. It was then time for lunch – we ate outside in the castle grounds. We spent the rest of the afternoon in the museum, finding fascinating information about the Romans. It was a great day.
