Year 6 have been to Vindolanda and the Roman Army Museum as part of their ‘Leaving a Legacy’ topic work. For some of the children, it was the first time they had ever visited a museum and being able to see artefacts that had been excavated from the Vindolanda site itself really helped to bring the topic alive. It was lovely to see the children talking to some of the archaeologists at Vindolanda and asking them questions about the job that they were doing and what they had discovered. All in all, it was a lovely day, with bright sunshine and eager and well-mannered children. It is always a privilege taking the children out on a visit – especially when their behaviour is commented upon by so many members of the public.
