Romans invade primary school
PUPILS have experienced a special day based on the fear of a Roman invasion in Ancient Britain.
Year 4 pupils from King's School in Mannamead have been handling artifacts, dressing in authentic clothes and taking part in roleplay to learn about the Britons' way of life.
Much debate ensued from a group discussion focusing on whether it was better to assemble an army to fight or to allow Roman rule.
The arguments were further fuelled by a Roman legionnaire laying down a challenge in Latin.

In the afternoon the focus shifted to Roman discipline and success in battle.
Samantha Phare, from King's School and Nursery, said: "The students were taught how to form the testudo using the shields they had made in workshops.
"The day ended in a mock battle that included other classes and parents, with much shouting, grunting and gnashing of teeth!"
