On Friday 25th November Year 4 had a Roman Day. Everyone came dressed as Roman soldiers or emperors in their togas, even the teachers dressed up!
Throughout the day there was a variety of activities for us to participate in. Roman numeracy and literacy lessons, mosaic making, Roman cooking and finally a real Roman artefact workshop. The historian who presented the workshop showed us how to make coins, how to thread Roman style and play traditional Roman games.
In the kitchen we made some Roman soup. We used potatoes, carrots and parsnips. First we peeled the vegetables, then cut them into small chunks and cooked them in stock. Surprisingly it was delicious.
It was a great day.
