Wow! History – The Romans

On Tuesday we were overwhelmed by Italian invaders as the school went Roman for this year’s Wow! History day.  We were joined by experts from Hands on History, The Danelaw Living History Museum and the Batavian Roman Enactment Group who really made the period come alive with their many fascinating artefacts and Apollo the horse!

The focus of the day was life in Britain under the Romans.  The children explored the dramatic changes in lifestyle of even the lowliest of citizens, after the arrival of the Roman legions.  They had the opportunity to handle real Roman objects and consider historical evidence underpinning our knowledge of the Romans.  As well as these activities the children made Roman coins and mosaics, took part in a drumming workshop, played Roman boardgames  and fought a water bomb battle at Hadrian’s wall!
