Y3 become Roman soldiers!

Today Year 3 went on a trip to Murton Park in York where we learnt about how to become Roman soldiers. This involved signing a contract to be a solider for 25 years, dressing as Romans, living in a fort, learning how to make oil lamps, training to fight (including throwing spears and using swords), learning the Latin commands and, finally, being paid our day’s wages! It was a very busy day and, despite the freezing weather and the very wet toes, we all had a brilliant time and the children’s attitude was fantastic. Brrr, who’d want to invade Britain in January…I don’t think we would!!!
