20th October 2021

We would like to invite your child to come into school dressed as a Roman on Wednesday 20th October.  Please send your child in wearing Roman clothes.  Please see the picture below for ideas on costumes.

The children can dress as someone rich, poor or a soldier. There are lots of ideas on the internet, or just use a simple sheet and belt to make a toga!

Year 1 and 2:  The children will also be learning what it's like to write on a wax tablet and the types of food that Romans would have eaten.

Year 5 and 6:  We plan to do some shield and mosaic making, along with role play army tactics.  In the afternoon we will reenact a battle followed by a reclining banquet.

The kitchen will also be preparing a Roman themed lunch menu on this day (attached) for those children who would like  a school dinner.

We hope it will bring History to life for the children.
