Roman Day in Year 4

In Year 4, we started Week 3 with a Roman day, to introduce our new topic. The children and adults came to school dressed as Romans. We had Roman themed lessons all day, including making Roman shields, Roman numerals, gladiator top trumps cards and our own chariot race!

Here are the children using their handmade Roman Shields to create the ‘tortoise’ formation, used by the Romans in battle. We even learned the Latin commands.
