At Cliftonville Primary School the year 3 pupils have been having a fun time learning about Romans. In order to experience some aspects of life for people living during the Roman times the children took part in a special Roman Day. The children all dressed up as Roman citizens and enjoyed a number of workshops throughout the day involving drama, pottery, dance.
One child explained, "We had to eat like Romans and dance like Romans. It was great!"
The children made Roman lamps and re-enacted battles at the Colosseum. They made Roman shields and took part in a Roman trail around the school. Laura Powell, year 3 teacher said, "The day was a real success, the children learned so much, and by the end of the day were talking excitedly about many aspects of life in Roman times."
