Visiting Chester

Date: 20th May 2023 @ 11:39am

Recently, we went on a school trip to Chester. When we arrived in Chester, we took a look around the Deva Discovery Centre. Inside, we got to explore many different aspects of Roman life. We saw areas where archaeologists had dug and uncovered years of Roman history, became archaeologists and looked for bones, and even got to dress up in Roman attire. In the afternoon, we became Roman soldiers and went out on patrol. We took our shields and weapons before marching through the city of Chester to the Roman gardens. In the gardens, we had the chance to learn about army formations and even take part in a battle. It was an enjoyable day for all.

We care, We soar’
