Year 3 History Workshop

On Wednesday, Year 3 children were visited by a Roman Centurion of the 2nd legion during their History Workshop.

The centurion explained to the children details about the equipment he was wearing and what job it would have served during battle! He also showed Year 3 individual items that would have been used in everyday Roman life and described what life would have been like in Rome.

During the afternoon session, children had the chance to practise their shield defence skills and the workshop ended with the story of Verus and Priscus, the first gladiator fight in the Colosseum.
