The Romans

 
As legionaries in the roman army, you are here in Roman Britain in the hope of making a name for yourselves, earning your way up through the ranks. 

During your Ufton School trip, your group will become new Roman legionnaire arrivals to a strange new land that they have settled in. Your visit will centre on our Iron age settlement, woods and farmlands where they will take part in crafts and skills, games, drama activities and Roman soldier training.

Our Roman narrative will allow your children to experience Roman life, as it would have been in nearby Calleva Atrebatum (Silchester). Whether it be for three days or one, your children will experience drama and fun in the activities that they do with us, all of which promote historical understanding, teamwork and problem solving.

“All the teaching and questions asked had the children thinking and engaged with the Roman topic. The banquet was incredible and the post banquet entertainment was fab. The battle was great fun too! – year 3 teacher at St Joseph’s College, June 2018
