Gilthill Primary School

Year 3 4 Roman day

The children had such a fantastic day learning about everything Roman. They learnt about the changes that Romans brought to Britain, including the Roman names of some British towns that they built. They learnt about the features and layouts of Roman towns and made their own outside. They learnt about inventions such as aqueducts for transporting water and they worked in teams to transport water with their own aqueducts.

On their Roman day they learnt about the lives and battles of Roman Legionaries and practised marching in formation with scutums (shields). They went to the forum and looked at artefacts, tried on clothes and wrote Roman letters. They learnt some Roman games and tried to be gladiators.
