Yesterday I had the absolute pleasure of visiting Sandown Primary School and delivering several of our Roman history packages to their Year 4 students.  As you can see the children had made a real effort dressing up and all of the parents and teachers involved deserve a hearty pat on the back.  I was also seriously impressed with the children’s knowledge when it came to Roman history, they’d all clearly been paying attention during their Roman topic work.

The children learned all about Julius Caesar and his two invasion attempts, and of course the Claudian invasion.  They discovered why the Roman army was so good at fighting and they even practiced fighting themselves, including the infamous testudo formation.  It’s fair to say that great fun was had by all.
