Roman Day

 

We had a Roman visitor who gave us an insight into what life was like during Roman times. We learnt how to become a legionary and how to march in a turtle formation with our scutums (shields). We also learnt about gladiators and gladiatrices, but didn't really like the thought of having to fight for other people's entertainment!

 

However, we did enjoy dressing up and learning how to write and play games.

 

It was a great day and we learnt lots of new facts, such as the Romans introducing cats and stinging nettles to Britain when they invaded in 43AD.
