This Week’s Successes & News
Roman Palace Visit
Year 2 went on a trip to Fishbourne Roman Palace (near Chichester)
last Friday to celebrate and consolidate their topic about the Romans.
The children dressed up as Roman slaves and took part in a number of
activities in the Roman workshop including: writing in Latin and Roman
numerals; building an archway as well as waterproof roofing; spinning
wool and making mosaics. They also enjoyed looking at the original
mosaic flooring in the Palace and exploring the gardens. A fantastic
day was had by all and Mrs Wilkinson, Mrs Evans and Mr Smith
would like to thank the children for being so sensible and enthusiastic.
