Year 4 Visit to Colchester Castle

30 Sep 16

On Tuesday 20 September we went to Colchester Castle as part of our History topic – The Romans. When we arrived at the castle we were welcomed and shown around. First we went got into our classes (4C and 4T) and built an Iron Age round house and a Roman Villa.

We then went down under the castle into the vaults. We had to count the steps as we went down – each step was worth 100 years, which means the steps were 200 years old. Our leader talked to us about the Celts and their round houses and then described the Roman invasion. We learnt how the Romans beat the Celts – killing, beheading them or making them slaves. After that we talked a little about Boudicca.

We spent the rest of the trip looking around the museum and learning about Roman artefacts.
