Year 6 really enjoyed a successful trip to Roman Chester. During the visit they experienced what it was like to be a Roman soldier in Britain and then re-enacted being Roman soldiers marching through the streets of Chester. They also practised their battle formations and chanting as they marched! Great fun was had by all of year 6.
