Rocking Romans invade Alderney

ANCIENT history came to life when Years 5 and 6 re-enacted what they had learned during a day out of the classroom at Alderney’s Roman fort at the Nunnery heritage site.

The States of Alderney granted special permission to 18 children from St Anne’s School and their teacher Maxine Simeone for their invasion.

After a tour of the historic site and its exhibits, they put on a special show for parents and friends entitled ‘Rocking Romans’, a whistle-stop tour in song about the Romans in Britain.

Their day included a lesson by Dr Isabel Picornell on the discoveries made in last year’s archaeological dig at the fort, which is due to resume next month.
