Haymead’s trip to Caerleon Museum

Haymead Class went to visit Caerleon National Roman Legion Museum as part of their learning about The Roman Empire and it’s impact on Britain. The excitement built as we crossed the River Severn and entered Wales. Finally, we arrived at the museum where there was lots to do. It was great to explore real objects which were found at the site. We got to try on armour and explore the life of a soldier further. The armour was really heavy so most of us agreed we wouldn’t like to march for long distances wearing it. After lunch, we role-played a Roman dinner party and acted as slaves or rich Romans. Did you know the Romans ate peacock brains and stuffed dormice? The best part was visiting the remains of a real amphitheatre. It was great as we acted out gladiator battles and fights against wild beasts. We managed to spot the different parts that we had found out about in the classroom. It was a fantastic visit and it helped us to explore how archaeologists were able to work out how the Romans lived and it was great to find out more about the different parts of Roman live we had studied.
