Is Terence, the retired auxiliary soldier, Roman or British? Join in with the events of his early life through the turbulent period of Boudica’s revolt and experience the everyday practicalities of life as a Roman soldier. Later, Terence invites you to build a part of his new house, developing your understanding of construction, comfort and decoration in a wealthy Romano-British home. Help to solve the problem of water supply to Terence’s new toilet by building and operating a real ten metre long aqueduct.
Although Terence is retired, he does a little work as a Roman teacher: this part of the session is filled with cross curricular links as we explore measuring units, etymology and an introduction to Latin.
A Roman day wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the amphitheatre... but it’s not all about lions and gladiators!
Thank you so so much for our Roman day. The children went home buzzing and lots of parents have mentioned how much they all talked at home about what they had learned. One has even sent me a photo of Celtic stew tonight that they’ve made! The staff were so impressed with the delivery that they saw. We are really looking forward to our Stone Age day in December with you and would like to book two more workshops next year for years 2&6.
Many thanks again! [M]
