Roman Myths

Year 3 have spent the week planning and writing their own Roman Myths. They have proof read and checked their myths with a partner! 

Proof Reading

After proof reading and checking their work, pupils discussed how to read aloud effectively and how to demonstrate good listening skills. They read their myths out loud to the class confidently using expression. 

Trip to Chester - Roman Experience Museum

Year 3 had the most wonderful day in Chester on Thursday 18th October.  We visited the Roman experience museum where we were taken on a tour discovering what it would have been like to be in the Roman army sailing to Chester (Deva) and living there as a soldier.  Maisie had to be a Roman doctor and touch, smell, look at and taste a poorly soldier's urine sample!  The children learnt the Roman words for different items including the sponge to wipe their bottoms.  They then were able to try on various Roman articles of clothing.  The chain mail was very heavy as Eve discovered.  In the afternoon after lunch we marched through Chester and the Roman gardens to the amphitheatre with a centurion.  Spencer and Imogen got to wear a Roman helmet which was also very heavy.  They all learnt how to form a "tortuga" to defend themselves from arrows. The children enjoyed watching Mrs Roberts and myself as gladiators battling for survival and then sentencing me to death as the loser of the fight.  To top it all we had a beautiful walk around Chester taking in the Cathedral, Roman wall and the river.
