Roman and Greek Workshops

Year 3 and Year 5 enjoyed exciting, interactive history workshops yesterday. "The History Man" visited school to deliver a workshop on the Romans to Year 3 and workshop on the Greeks to Year 5. He brought examples of armour along with him to explain how it was used in battle and taught the boys and girls about different battle formations, amongst other things.  

The children learnt lots of interesting facts about the Romans and the Greeks - about Roman invasion, about daily life in the classical Greek city-states and they even got to dress-up in armour and drill to commands! The workshops really helped to bring the children's classroom studies alive, allowing them to understand their current topics much more fully.
