Year 3 invade Housesteads!

Year 3 invade Housesteads!

On Tuesday 20th May, Year 3 invaded Housesteads Roman Fort!  Having been greeted by a real life Roman citizen called Rufus, we undertook army training so that we were most proficient in the use of shields and spears. We then learnt how to protect our legion from the enemy by making a tortoise formation! We also had the opportunity to roam around the fort hunting for various remains. Great fun was had by all and many thanks to the parents who accompanied us.
