Ro­mans lead way on dress­ing up day

Macclesfield Express - - TODDLER MURDER VERDICT -

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!”
