Y4 Roman Day

All Year 4 children enjoyed a Roman themed day of learning on Tuesday 18th April.  Many children dressed up as Romans for the occasion, they looked fantastic and it greatly added to the immersion.  We had an historian visit bringing a plethora of Roman linked crafts and activities for the children to enjoy.  They created wax tablets with hidden messages, made herb balls that Romans used to scent themselves and wash with, made jewellery from clay and metal, ground charcoal to make ink and ground olives to extract oil for lamps to mention a few activities!  The children also participated in plays, dances and Roman soldier shield formations.  Throughout the day historical facts were given to set the scene and add to their knowledge of Romans in Britain. A great day was had by all!
