Roman Day Years 3 & 4
As part of our exciting topic, The Romans, we have arranged for the children to experience being a Roman for a day in school on Monday 19th February. A specialist teacher will join the key stage 2 team from the company ‘History off the page’ and the pupils will, through role-play, experience life as it would have been living in the year 60AD, using authentic tools and materials wherever possible to learn skills as apprentices in a wide variety of workshops, learning, making and trading crafts. As the day progresses, the children will get involved in the issues of the time, with the chance to participate in a range of cross-curricular activities. By the end of the day they will have a really good idea of how it felt to be a Roman at the time of the Boudican Revolt. We have had this company come into school in previous years and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all children and staff – a fantastic experience full of hands-on learning for all!
Some of the exciting activities the children will be taking part in are: making wax tablets, ink making and writing, painting a Roman style fresco, making clay charms and acting as Roman soldiers.
To ensure all pupils are fully involved in the experience, we would like all pupils to dress in costume as a Roman child. Please click on the link below for a picture as a suggestion of how the costume may look. Children will need to arrive at school in their costumes.
The banquet in the afternoon will consist of the following food items:
• Bread rolls
• Cheddar cheese
• Slices of apple
• Blackcurrant squash
