Year 4 began the week by travelling back in time! Roman children arrived in their togas for school on Monday, ready to take part in their Roman activities. They began their day learning Latin, thinking of their Roman name and then scratching it into their wax tablets. We then moved on to maths (using only Roman numerals) and after lunch, they designed and decorated their own shields in preparation for formation practice as part of the Roman legionary army! To finish off the day, we ate a Roman feast of bread dipped in honey, olives, dates, grapes and even had a cup of grape juice (we decided against the flamingo brains and dormice dipped in honey!) Our Roman ‘day’ didn’t stop there, as the next day we also began to create our own mosaics! We are very impressed with our Roman classes and we all had a lovely day!
