Visit to Fishbourne Roman Place (14.06.18)
As part of our work on the Romans, Y4 spent a fascinating day visiting the Roman Palace at Fishbourne.
We enjoyed looking at the amazing mosaics and Roman artefacts.
We also learnt some surprising facts about Roman baths and Mr Victor volunteered to have his chin hair removed with Roman tweezers!
Charley led a really fun workshop, where we dressed up as Roman slaves and tried out Roman writing; spinning wool; creating our own mosaic designs and working in a Roman kitchen.
We also tried building Roman arches.
Holly and Adebayo dressed as rich Romans and looked amazing in their outfits.
Luckily, the sun returned, so we could explore the lovely Roman gardens and pose on the outdoor triclinium. We had an amazing day.
Ancient Greek Workshop 25.01.18
Year 3 and 4 enjoyed a fantastic day being Ancient Greeks for the day. We had fun acting out the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur and later the battle of Marathon. David was a brave Theseus and James his father Aegeas, while Taylor enjoyed being Ariadne.
We also learnt about Greek armour and weapons as the Ancient Greeks loved fighting. Nessi tried on a heavy bronze helmet and Ana held a huge Spartan shield - they both looked very impressive.
