Roman invasion

Posted: 9th February 2016 | Category: Years 1 & 2

The school was in a state of great excitement on Friday morning as centurions, gladiators, senators and even an archaeologist all poured into the school.  Children (and parents - thank you!) had clearly put a lot of effort into their costumes and the day got off to a great start.  Throughout the day, we enjoyed a range of activities: sand tray archaeology, discovering and analysing artefacts; creating a unique Skippers mosaic; attempting to make Roman-style bread; and trying Roman Maths and games.  A visiting team from Lewes Castle shared their genuine Roman artefacts with the children, who were able to get hands on and work out for themselves how we have found out about the Roman way of life.  Finally, Years 5, 6 and 7 performed Latin plays that we have been practising in class: Medusa, a Pompeian ghost story and the Three Little Pigs as you have never seen them before!  Thank you very much to all involved for a memorable and inspiring day.
