The Roman Invasion

The Romans Invade St. Joseph's School!

Exeter Museum brings history to life in a fantastic educational day for years 2 and 3.

The children and staff all had a fascinating day and learnt so much about their way of life.

We tried on clothing and jewellery, wore armour, held shields and swords, smelt a variety of oils and spices then enjoyed crushing them to make the most delicious aromas.

Sam was wonderful at the sling shot! The children then went on to fight the Britons on the school field. There was some debate about who won the battle. Mr Newton, Chief of the tribe suggested that the Romans definitely won.

A very big thank you for all the parents who joined in with the battle and helped support the children.
