Children step back to Roman timesPosted: 12th June 2019
Children took a step back in time as they sampled life as a Roman.
Year 3 pupils at Roydon Primary Academy visited the British Museum as part of their topic on Romans.
Children took part in activities, using artefacts exhibited in the museum to research more about day-to-day life in Roman Britain. They looked at the food they ate, the tools they used, architecture and pottery.
Alison Hazell, class teacher, said: “We have also been learning about Boudica and the children were particularly fascinated in the Snettisham Treasure area with a series of discoveries of Iron Age precious metal, found in the Snettisham area of the English county of Norfolk, where Boudica’s Iceni tribe originated.
“It was exciting for pupils to see all the gold treasure and jewels – some of it may have belonged to Boudica herself!”
