Special Event - Roman Day

16 October 2009

As part of Year 4's History topic, the Romans, the children had an educational visit from the 'Roman Man' to the school on Friday 16th October.

During the visit the children learned all about the Roman way of life (food, clothes and social issues). They were able to handle Roman artefacts including weapons and took part in Roman Army training.
