A step back in time for Ellesmere Primary pupils

A brave legion of soldiers from Ellesmere Primary School took to the ancient streets for Chester for a fun and interactive trip this week.

All of the pupils got the chance to dress up and inhabit various roles from Roman society, before enjoying a tour of the many sites of historical interest across the city, including the famous amphitheatre.

They even got a chance to try their hands at some traditional Roman cuisine and cooking tools, with everyone coming to the conclusion that they have it a little better these days!
