Our recent topic is Romans and we have done a variety of subjects on it including Boudicca, mosaics, Hadrian’s Wall and Gods.
To find out about Roman buildings we went to Burgh Castle. Mummy made a field trip sheet to fill in, but Anna didn’t do it so Nanny did it for her.
The sheet asked us to see what it was made of and I thought it was made of stone, clay, brick and flint.
I took some pictures of the layers in the wall.
Next we had to look for the bastions. A bastion is there to help defend the castle. We saw 6 bastions but there would have been more.
These are my pictures of the different bastions we could see.
These are holes in the walls where the bricks have fallen out and they are not supposed to be there. You could see a bastion through one of the holes. Can you see which one?
I think this hole might be something to hold a roof up with a wood pillar. There were 7 and they were square so looked like they should be there.
These walls have either fallen down or are wonky.
We learnt a lot and had fun exploring!
