Wow, what a truly amazing trip, we were very lucky with the weather as the sun was shining, despite it being a bit cool. The whole class thoroughly enjoyed the day where got involved in every aspect of becoming a Roman solider. Before they settled into their selected barracks, they were split into four groups. Each group then took part in the following;
Introduction to the Romans
Completing their Roman contract in Latin and Roman Numerals!
Creating their own Roman oil lamp
Time to refuel before training begins!
Ready for action!
Weapon Training in action!
Weapon training - javelin throwing

The children were incredible. They listened really well during the health and safety talk before becoming familiar with the two pools. They carried out a few tasks so that the swimming coaches could carry out a quick baseline assessment. During the session, some of the children were asked to complete a task to swim across the pool. During this task the teachers were observing if the children could use the correct breast stroke technique with strong arms and turned out toes. All the staff were so proud of how well the children worked. Keep it up Team GG.
The children tested different mark making techniques before designing and making their own clay pot for the Stone Age to Iron Age period. They applied their skills of moudling clay before selecting the correct tools to add their design. The following week, they chose the correct colours to paint their pot. Before they chose the colours they had a discussion about the colours would be from natural object.
