On Tuesday 9 July 2019 Class 3 visited Binchester Roman Fort. The children were fascinated by the opportunity to see real archaelogists at work as they excavated a newly-discovered area. Mr Henderson (our Chair of Governors and member of a Roman re-enactment group called Roma Antiqua) gave us a fact-filled guided tour of the main parts of the fort and answered the children’s questions about life in the fort during Roman times. All the children also had the chance to design and make a Roman pot out of clay. Many thanks to Mr Henderson and the staff at the fort for organising all the activities.
