Year 4 enjoyed their first school trip of the academic year last week in Chichester. The children started the day by the coast, looking for evidence of a Roman tile making site which once provided tiles to Fishbourne Roman Palace. They found many real Roman tile treasures. After enjoying lunch in the beautiful Bishop's Palace Gardens, they discovered the remains of Roman Chichester, such as its gates & walls. The class then went to the Novium Museum for a hands-on Roman workshop. Here, they were shown the excavations of Chichester's Roman Baths, learnt about what a visit to them in Roman times would have been like, & were able to see & handle many Roman artefacts. They enjoyed dressing as Roman warriors. Their eyes were opened as to just how heavy and bulky the armour would have been to wear whilst fighting!
