Roman Workshop

Year 3 have started the year with all of the excitement of a Roman visitor in school. The children explored Roman life whilst being able to interact with the many artefacts that were part of the experience. Children tried writing with a quill and wax tablet, spinning wool and creating a pattern rubbing. They also acted out a battle in costume and visited a mint to create their own souvenir Roman coin.

Our trip to watch ‘Incredible Invadors’ at the Hexagon theatre was truly memorable. Here are some of our best bits…

Jack- When the woman got her tongue cut off and went mmm mmm mmm.

Emily- When the tongue was wiggling in the Saxon man’s hand.

Will- When the Saxons got panicked because the Vikings were coming.

Chloe and Scarlett – Mavis kept saying the names of places in England ending in ‘by’ like Derby and Mavis kept saying Slough.

Max- When the Saxon’s head fell off.

Jo Jo- When the Celts tried to sacrifice Mavis in the wicker man.

Seth- The 3D animations in the background.

Freya and Keira- When Boudicca came on and danced and was crazy.

James- When the Roman General kept attacking different villagers with his hammer.

Olivia- When Mavis kept running from country to country to see where she could be safe.

Phoenix- When the terrifying dog kept scaring the audience.

Annabel- When King Arthur (pretend) came on and explained that he wasn’t real.

Can you add to the list of best bits from the show?
