2M’s trip to the Römermuseum Enns

EnnsOn Wednesday, 13th June 2019, Miss Gauch and Miss Haslinger took our class 2M to Enns to see the Roman museum. Our ‘Roman time travel’ started at Linz central station, from where we took the train to Enns. From the station in Enns we took a walk for approximately 20 minutes to the Roman exhibition at the museum Lauriacum.
During Roman times Enns was called Lauriacum. It was a legion base and an important city at the Danube limes.
Inside the museum we were picked up by the museum guide at 9.30 a.m.
The guide led us through the museum, explained the exhibits of the Roman empire and told us how they were used.
For instance, we learned that the Roman legionnaires had to cook their own food. They obviously ate a lot of wheat bread and carbohydrates, proof of that were their bad teeth which we could look at on a skull exhibited. They also made themselves wine, which they sweetened with honey.
The Romans slept in bunk beds.
The soldiers had to keep themselves clean to avoid infections and epidemics in the fort.
Romans already had medicines as well as hospitals, where also war casualties were treated.
We were shown how legions made their battle line-up and were told about the importance of the Roman Aquila, which was a golden eagle.
There were skeletons from a whole family including a kid.
Finally, we watched a movie about a Roman family and scenes out of their everyday life.
The really interesting visit at the Lauriacum museum ended at 11. a.m. with a nice photograph of our wonderful class 2M.

1L went to the Wurbauer Kogel (with photos)

DSCN3133The trip to the Wurbauer Kogel was very enjoyable. Our class (1L) and the 4m could have this trip because we had won at the Walkathon. Our teachers, Miss Gauch and Miss Koller (1L) and Miss Alt and Mr Wakolbinger (4M) accompanied us.

On June 5th, we all met in front of the school at 8.15. Most of us were there earlier. The bus came at around 8.30 and it took about one- and -a- half- hours to get there. Next, we walked for a few minutes to get to a chairlift. This chairlift was extremely old and could only seat one person! The hill the chairlift brought us up to was very steep and some of us got scared. Luckily, it was over relatively quickly (8 minutes)! After everyone had safely arrived, we went to a place where we could practice shooting arrows with a bow. When everyone was good at shooting, you could go into the forest and shoot fake 3D animals. There were a lot of them! This took the whole morning. We were all very exhausted and therefore decided to buy an ice cream. We also had a water fight (but only 1l). Afterwards, we went on a Panorama tower. That was cool! Furthermore, we watched a short film about nature. Finally, we went down the summer toboggan run ( Sommerrodelbahn). This was probably the best part of our trip! It was great!! Sadly, we then had to go back to the school on the bus. All in all, this trip had been one of the best we have ever had!
