Year 4 at the Verulamium Museum

Year 4 visited Verulamium Museum in St Albans to learn more about their History topic, the Romans.

The children took part in a Roman market workshop, where they got into character by wearing a Roman-style tunic and purchasing items from the market. The children handled a range of replica artefacts and learned about the food, tools, clothes and metalware the Romans had.

After the workshop, the children had a look around the museum and at all the different artefacts that were excavated from the site the museum is on, including a huge mosaic!

The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and have already asked to visit again!

The Pause

At St James, we feel it is important to introduce our pupils to stillness and allow them to discover how to be inwardly free and deeply at ease within themselves. A short period of 5-10 minutes at the beginning and middle of every day is allocated to quietude in which pupils may meditate, contemplate or simply be still – according to their own spiritual inclinations.
