Wow! This morning we were invaded by Romans, both rich and poor as they streamed excitedly in through the school doors in eager anticipation of their Roman-themed day. Thank you for the amazing effort with the costumes. It certainly added the WOW factor to the day.
In Maths, we unravelled a Roman recipe that was written in Roman Numerals and we cracked a few codes to decipher secret messages. We had a super playtime, charging around the “battlefield” reenacting battles between the Iceni and Romans, and rescuing beautiful Roman empresses and maidens, before attending our Roman workshop led by “Flora, the archeaologist” from Crew Education.
She had all the children engaged and interacting with props, artifacts and costumes. We learned about Claudius and his army, both what they wore and military strategies; the lives of wealthy Romans and their slaves and reenacted a battle against Boudica and her tribe.
The afternoon, was spent designing and making mosaics which we will be using in our maths lesson next term.
