Oaks visited Colchester Castle this week with the rest of Year 4. They had a fanstastic day exploring The Iron Age, The Roman Takeover and The Roman Heyday. The children went into the Roman vault under the castle and they were shown the Roman temple that was originally built before Bouddica and The Celts burnt it down. They were then shown how the castle was built and what would happen if the Celts refused to do their job. We also had a go at building a Roman villa or an Iron Age roundhouse so we could compare the differences. Finally the children walked around the museum to collect information in their packs.
