Year 4 Trip to Chedworth Villa

Year 4 enjoyed a very informative and enjoyable day visiting Chedworth Roman Villa in Gloucestershire last week.  This proved to be an excellent opportunity for the children to be fully engaged in learning all about life in Roman Britain first hand. The children clearly enjoyed being able to handle and examine artefacts found on site in order to appreciate what life would have been like at the time.

The making of infusion bags, with the aroma of the various herbs used, was particularly enjoyed as the children became slaves and prepared the ingredients using a pestle and mortar. The beautiful mosaic floors and the bath house contributed to a wonderful learning experience for all the children.
