Year 3B had a wonderful afternoon in the Senior School with Mrs Ames looking at different Roman artefacts. They have each written a report about their afternoon choosing their own heading and subheadings as well as using paragraphs full of facts that they learnt and also including their own observational drawings.
Highlights of the children’s reports:
The oil lamp
The oil lamp is quite funny because it has string at the and it has a picture of a horse called Pegasus. He is a famous horse.
I also liked the oil lamp because I liked the way that it worked. You pour olive oil in the clay lamp, light the wick, and it keeps going! Myles
There were two Roman helmets and they were made from different metals. One is for celebrations and parties and the other one is for fighting. One had a crack on its head, one had a human mask and one was much heavier than the other.
There are two different types of helmets. One of the helmets has a face on it and was used for ceremonies. The other had flap cheek guards; it also had a collar to protect the neck.
