Friends and Romans!

Children and staff dressed in a variety of ways to celebrate Roman Day.

  • Roman Day

The children came dressed as gladiators, rich and poor Roman citizens, emperors and empresses and of course, there were plenty of slaves! During the day the children took part in a number of activities to get a better understanding of how the Romans lived. These activities included: making catapults; putting together a Roman dessert; writing Latin sayings onto scrolls and making oil lamps out of clay. In the afternoon, all the children gathered for a wonderful Roman feast with authentic Roman treats sourced from all over the city. Fortunately we did not have to eat stuffed dormice and larks’ tongues! It was a wonderful day of fun and learning!

Here is what some of the children said about the day:

I learnt that Roman soldiers used lots of big weapons and catapults in the army.” Annabelle, 4 Plum

The Romans didn’t have electricity. I found out that they used oil lamps.” Xenia, 4 Plum

I learned what the Romans ate.” Leo, 4 Plum
