Romans lead way on dressing up day
PRIMARY school students stepped back in time to learn all about the Romans.
The pupils at Bosley St Mary’s Primary School enjoyed a ‘ Roman Day’ where they spent the day dressing up and learning about ancient history.
Activities ranged from doing maths in Roman numerals and learning all about the gory battles, to chariot racing and javelin throwing.
Rachel MorishireSmith, who teaches Key Stage Two, said: “Our visiting ancient Roman ‘Madgarisiannus’ – Mad for short – gave the junior children and staff a wonderful ancient Roman experience in school last week.
“We have had lots of other fun with our own archaeological dig and with baking and eating Roman-style food, including honey cake.
“The children put great effort into making and wearing some fantastic home-made costumes for the day – they came dressed either as Celts or Romans, both slave and wealthy. Oh, and one goddess!”
