Year 4 pupils had the most amazing time visiting Lunt Roman Fort recently. They attacked the forts as Celtics, completed Roman army training and even had a battle as part of their history lessons. The Lunt is an excellent example of an early Roman fort and is the only reconstructed Roman cavalry fort in Britain. Based on the archaeological evidence on site, the Lunt’s imposing wooden gateway and ramparts have been reconstructed to create a glimpse into the history of Roman Britain. Educational visits to the Lunt are tailored to the Key Stage 2 History curriculum, so they support the children’s study of the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain.
Davinder Jandu, Principal said:
“The Year 4 pupils were able to bring their learning alive as they took part in reenactments. Visits such as these make the learning experiences memorable and have a lasting impact on the children. We aim to provide as many real-life experiences as possible for our pupils at Yarnfield as we recognise the importance of firsthand experiences in making the learning real and relevant for the children.”
