Year 3 Roman Day

They Came, They Saw, They Conquered!

On Friday 20th January Year 3 took a fascinating trip back in time to Ancient Rome, thanks to a history workshop run by Mike from Portals to the Past. The children, dressed in fine Roman costumes, explored what it was like to live in Ancient Rome by playing games and learning fun facts about the Roman Empire and famous Roman figures such as Julius Caesar, Cleopatra and Boudicca. The children also enjoyed a delicious Roman banquet at lunchtime which included chicken drumsticks, cheese, bread, figs, grapes and wine (juice). The afternoon session started with a display of Roman and Celtic weapons and armour and the finale was an entertaining re-enactment of Boudicca’s final battle with the Romans.
