Year 3 children at St. Philip’s Catholic Primary School Uckfield , were greeted by Roman visitors when they arrived at school on Thursday.
The children were thrown back into the Roman Invasion of Britain with a battle between the Celts and the Romans as they enjoyed a Roman Day, provided by Living History Workshops.
Activities available included gladiator training, writing curses and practicing Roman army formations. The children also turned their hands to archeology, trying to identify different types of Roman pottery and distinguishing between fake and real coins.
Class teacher, Katie Nolan said, “This was a wonderful day of creative learning, when children immersed themselves in a distant culture and engaged in hands-on activities to deepen their understanding of life in Roman times.”
