Roman Day Year 4
January 07 | All day
Dear Parents/Carers, As part of our History learning, we are very excited to announce that on Friday 7th January 2022, the whole Year 4 family will become Romans for the day with a workshop offered by the educational team from Portals to the Past. This workshop will take us on a magical time-travelling journey through the mysteries of Ancient Rome and the influence they had on Britain! The children will explore the dramatic change in the lifestyle of even the lowliest citizens following the arrival of the Roman legions, take a tour through a bath-house and experience the excitement of the games arena. Real Roman artefacts provide the opportunity to get a real hands-on experience of history. The children will be involved in different activities throughout the day, including: DELTA – Learn basic maths using Roman numerals in a math based game ROMAN QUIZ – Discover fascinating facts SEGEDUNUM – Play a simple and fun Roman game ROMAN ARTEFACTS AND WAY OF LIFE- See artefacts and discover how ancient Romans lived. BOUDICCA’S FINAL BATTLE WITH THE ROMANS The day finishes with a gladiator show, in which the children have all the important roles, from slaves through to the mighty Emperor. The Roman workshop leaders have appeared in many historical documentaries and feature films, as well as the BBC’s “Horrible Histories”! The cost of this amazing experience will be just £5 per child – this covers the cost of the Roman Experts and the exciting activities throughout the day. To complement this day, we would like to invite the children to dress up in Roman costumes. This does not need to be anything too fancy (unless you want it to be!) We welcome your children to dress up for the occasion! There is no need to buy anything new-being wrapped in a bed sheet with a belt is perfect! Please make payment of £5 on School Gateway by Wednesday 5th January. If you have an issue or query with this, please see any of the Year 4 teachers. Please ensure all payments have been made by Wednesday 5th January 2022.
