Pupils at Ashwicken Primary School set up a temporary museum to showcase their work on the Romans. 

The youngsters from Years Four and Five took over the school’s front entrance and corridor and acted as curators showing visitors around the exhibits.

The class have been learning about the Romans for their latest topic and for their homework they created temples, colosseums, villas, mosaics, shields and fact files on Roman soldiers.

Class teacher Karen King said: “They were absolutely stunning and lots of hard work and knowledge went into them.

“They have been fascinated by their Roman topic and they created some fabulous work.”

The museum was opened up to the rest of the school  with parents and grandparents invited to visit in the afternoon.
