On Thursday 26 January we held a Roman Activity Day for our Year 3 pupils as part of their Topic work on Ancient Rome.
In the morning we made shields and learnt about the Roman army and their battle tactics. We then had a banquet and tasted a range of foods which the Romans would have eaten; dates, figs, olives, honey and oranges.
After lunch the Year 6 pupils taught the younger children different commands in Latin (which would have been used by the Roman soldiers).
They practiced different army formations and participated in a mock battle on the field. The afternoon finished with the creation of mosaics using individual squares made by the children.
We had a fantastic day and learnt a lot about the Romans. The children have produced some wonderful work - please feel free to come and look at the displays in Form Cedar.
