Roman Day!

Today we have had two visitors in school, teaching us all about the Romans! We have been keen to find out more, since our WOW lesson, with the Roman suitcase, so have a read to see what else we have discovered...

We started the day by meeting our Roman solider (who scared the teachers by slamming the door open, in true army style!) and learning about the Roman army. We talked about the different army formations and then had a go at making these, with Mrs Moorthy (our Sri Lankan teacher) learning all about 'hands on' learning! When we were ready for battle, our teachers 'attacked' us with 'swords' and we had to defend ourselves, making sure we did not retreat from our 'enemies'!
We then talked about life as a Roman solider and learnt about how much Roman soldiers were paid. Did you know they even had to pay to be buried? As part of daily life, Romans used to go to the toilet TOGETHER! We had a practice on the Roman toilets and learn all about how to clean our bottoms... we had to share the toilet brush and wash it in a pot!! We also learnt that Romans liked to play games like marbles and tag, just like some of us do today!

In our afternoon session, we spent lots of time learning about the different types of Roman soldiers and Gladiators. Our teachers had to dress up as different soldiers and have a battle and Reece had a go at target practice, whilst wearing some very heavy armour, which was hard to move in!
After spending time in our 'Roman ampitheatre' we learnt about the different injuries and how these were treated. We learnt about trephining (releasing blood from the brain) and got to use Roman medical tools to help the injured soldier. We then went back inside and looked at how cataracts were removed, and even got to try cataract glasses on, so we could imagine what it was like... can you believe they used to suck cataracts out of people's eyes?

At the end of the day, we learnt all about the burials of Roman soliders. We laid the sword beside the solider, put money in his eyes and even left food for the after life, before burying our solider (Loganitus) under his shield!
We have had an absolutely fantastic day, thank you to all of our parents for your generous donations! Hopefully you can see from the amazing pictures we have uploaded, and will continue to upload, that this experience was invaluable!
There are lots more pictures to come, our teachers are just sorting through, as we took so many, so make sure you keep checking the class pages!!

Art- Mosaics

As part of our Art Unit on Mosaics, we have been experimenting with different materials and techniques to see which one we would like to use in our own design. Which technique would you use?

Designing our own mosaics- work in progress!

After last week's investigation into materials, we decided to use printing to decorate our own Roman mosaic work- take a look at our creations so far!
