On 12 June, Year 3 pupils undertook a right Roman adventure at Dover Museum by taking part in their annual Roman Festival! Both children and staff alike donned their togas and set off by coach for the museum to join other schools for a day of interesting workshops.
First up was makeup and hair – some very convincing battle wounds were applied to arms! Next came an artefact workshop featuring a real Roman horseshoe, several replica human shoes and parts of an old Roman wall.
After this, we enjoyed a drama workshop where the children were given the opportunity to embrace their inner warrior. Fearsome and theatrical, we were very proud of our SLCJS army. After lunch on the Roman lawn, we enjoyed making a clay soldier's head and an interesting half an hour discussing Roman medicines – poor Mr McPherson was 'operated' on by some of the children!
A thoroughly enjoyable day was had by all, and the children looked brilliant - see the Photo Gallery.
