The children in Year 4 had a very special visitor to kick start their history topic: The Romans. On this day, the pupils were immersed in all things Roman.
The children learnt about key historical figures, significant places, weapons, battle techniques and important dates relating to Roman Britain. After splitting into the three classes, each group participated in themed activities. These included playing a Roman board game called ‘Delta’ which involved sliding counters and scoring points using Roman numerals; learning about and handling real Roman artefacts; and finding out lots of facts as part of a Roman quiz. In the afternoon, the children were immersed in a Gladiatorial fight in our very own Toftwood Arena with our Toftwood Emperor!
