Y3 Roman Day!

The Y3's had an excellent day preparing for our Roman invasion of the school. We spent the morning creating magnificent shields and helmets, and also found time to make an oil-lamp and a bookmark with Celtic designs.  We were very grateful to all the parents who came in to help us, and we were particularly impressed with their costume efforts!  In the afternoon the children had a visit from a Roman museum and had great fun trying on chain mail armour, playing with knuckle bones, and using a wax tablet. The children learned army formations in preparation for an invasion of the whole school, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all!
