Year 3 and 4 trip to Segedunum

As lower Key Stage 2, we visited Segedunum as part of our topic about the Romans, their invasion and their legacy.

After being delayed on the way there, the children were very excited when we pulled up to the Roman remains and could see a tower overlooking the fort.

As soon as we entered the museum, we were greatly welcomed and given a timetable for the day of all the different activities and areas we could visit. This was a fantastic opportunity, as we were the only school at the museum, therefore the children were allowed to explore every aspect of the fort and museum.

Year 4 were first in the workshop, where they learned all about the invasion, the different Roman soldiers, how to march like a soldier and how to fight like a soldier. The children learned an oath which they then had to repeat whilst marching around the activity room.

As a group, we were then given the opportunity to watch Mr Walton, dress up as a Roman soldier with ring mail, helmets, shields and much more! The

The Year 3’s were given the pleasure of seeing Mrs Quince dress as a Roman soldier, sinking in to the floor as the ring mail became too heavy to carry.

After lunch, it was Year 3’s opportunity to learn about the invasion and the Year 4’s time to explore the Roman fort remains.

The children completed activity books, where they had to follow the Fort Trail and Hadrian’s Wall trail. They were able to find Minerva’s headstone, locate the Roman hospitals and explore the location of Hadrian’s Wall.

Your kind words

Your teaching staff work so well together, they are an absolute credit to you and your school (as are the children).
I have to say the children, and staff, are an absolute credit to the school and I wanted to let you know as they were fantastic.
They were all very well behaved and very sensible. Well done on having such a lovely school.
“A lovely school with a good atmosphere for learning and having fun”
We are so proud of the progress our son has made in Year 1.
I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff who have helped my daughter this year.
Our son has thoroughly enjoyed his time as a Year 4 student.
It’s nice to have an informative school report that concentrates on the positives of my child’s learning.
Keep up the good work, without confidence it’s hard for a child to grow.
You were both very understanding and I really do appreciate this. Thank you so much.
You all do fantastic jobs and I appreciate this.
Not only has he progressed academically, he has also gained more confidence and I would like to thank Mr Clift for playing an instrumental part in this.
Many thanks to all the staff at Preston, it is you who make us parents feel our children are happy and safe.
She has really enjoyed Year 3. We are really pleased with the progress she has made in many subjects – especially in maths.
I just wanted to say “well done” for this year’s year 6 sats results! They were amazing and I know that it would have taken sheer hard work from the children and teachers to enable your pupils to achieve with the unrealistic expectations set the Gove & Morgan camp.
Thank you for the report it was a pleasure to read and we greatly appreciate all that you done for her this year.
