A Weston primary school took a leap back in time last week and acted out the second Roman invasion into Britain.

Year three and four students from Bournville Primary School have been learning about the invasion – as well as the day-to-day life of people during the Roman era – in their history lessons this term.

The students were taught how to set up their own history exhibits by Weston Museum’s Katherine Bell, who helped plan the event on November 23.

Katherine brought with her some Roman handling boxes to feature on some of the students exhibits.

The event was a chance for the students to showcase what they had learned during the term.
