Despite a very wet start to Roman Day, all our gladiators, soldiers and Roman ladies made it in, so our day could begin! We started by making mosaic photo frames which would go home later on complete with pictures of the children resplendent in their costumes. Before first break we paraded around the sports hall showcasing all our costumes and the fantastic shields and swords the children had created in DT lessons.
After break, the Roman ladies went to the Home Economics room to bake bread following an early Roman recipe while the boys went to practice army manoeuvres and sword fighting.
The afternoon was spent preparing to welcome our Year 3 guests and Emperor Jenkins to our Roman banquet. The banquet was a huge success with Emperor Jenkins being quite terrified at times by the Year 4 warriors and all our guests thoroughly enjoyed the lavish spread of food including the Roman bread baked by the girls. Guests also enjoyed ‘pelican tongues’, ‘dormice’, olives, cheese, meats, fruit and Roman honey biscuits. A huge thank you to all the Year 4 parents for your support in sourcing Roman costumes, the children looked brilliant!
