Year 4 Roman Day Experience
A visit to St Albans Cathedral to start their Roman Studies
Year 4 enjoyed a fantastic visit to St Alban's cathedral to begin their history topic of The Romans. They participated in two main activities there. One was the Alban trail which involved them walking around the cathedral, noticing its various features which linked to the story of Alban who lived under Roman rule and how he became the first saint in England. The children had great fun dressing up in costume and participating in role play to re-enact the historical story.
The other activity was based around Roman art where the children learned about Roman mosaics and then used coloured tiles, wood and grout to make one of their own - they loved making these, and they all looked brilliant!
It was a very enjoyable day, we learned a lot and the cathedral staff remarked that the children were a credit to the school, showing good behaviour, lots of interest and asking appropriate questions.
We would like to thank all the parents who helped on the day and the Y4 staff for organising this trip.
