For our end of year trip, Year 3 had a great day out visiting the Roman fort of Arbeia in South Shields. First we had a session of hands-on archaeology where the children found lots of evidence of Roman remains. They also looked at a range of artifacts such as pottery, metal work and bones.
After lunch we toured around the site and visited the recreated barrack block and then the Commanding Officer’s quarters with it’s beautifully decorated rooms.
Later on the children decided to search among the ruins to see if they could find any undiscovered treasures! All kinds of things were found and the children had a great time.
