Year 4 Roman Day

Year 4 enjoyed a day where all things were Roman!

They all came dressed as Romans, from soldiers to elegant Roman ladies.

In the morning we had a look at Roman Numerals, and constructed a numberline and clock. Then we were delighted that the legionary Lucius Maiorius Cogitatus (Mr Coggins) joined us. He came dressed in his armour with his weapons and shield and taught us all about life as a Roman soldier.  Then he helped us practise our marching formations with our Roman shields. We learned many Latin words and commands!

After that we made wax tablets (that the Romans used to write on) and catapults, which we tested in the playground. They worked really well!

In the afternoon, we made mosaics from our own photos and made and ate pizza!


it was a really fun day and we really enjoyed being Romans for the day!
