The children had access to many Roman artefacts which fascinated them and generated a lot of discussion.

The class learned all about Roman daily life, from cooking flatbreads, writing in Latin on wax tablets to visiting a Roman Bath House.

The children said it was the ‘best day ever’ and were very enthusiastic throughout the wonderful and creative day.
