Year 3 Visit Arbeia

On Friday, Year 3 had a fantastic trip to see the remains of a Roman fort in South Shields. The fort, called Arbeia, was a supply base for Hadrian’s Wall which ended just across the river Tyne in Wallsend. As you will see from the photographs, there was a lot to see and do.

First of all the children learnt all about the work of archaeologists and then tried out their skills to find buried artifacts. They also dressed up in items of clothing that would have been worn at the time.

Later we saw the barracks where the soldiers would have lived and then the much posher commander’s quarters. The trip gave us a real feel of what it must have been like to live here 2,000 years ago and the children had a great time.
