Year 4 - Nene Park Outdoor Centre

Roman Day trip to Ferry Meadows - November 2023

Year 4 wowed our hosts at Ferry Meadows with their knowledge of the Roman Empire.  They were then taught more about the Roman presence in Peterborough and our local links with the 9th Legion.  The children completed an orienteering route in order to find clues to answer their Roman questions.  Luckily, their map reading skills were up to scratch and nobody got lost!

In teams, the class built a wattle and daub wall structure and utilised the weaving skills they have been learning about in Art lessons on a much grander scale.

In the afternoon, teams built a Roman onager (catapult type structure) and tested their structure to find out how to make the onager launch missiles to travel over a greater distance.
