As part of our topic on the Romans, Year 4 will be taking part in a Roman Soldier workshop on Tuesday, 25th September. We are asking for a voluntary contribution of £10 per pupil to cover the cost of the workshop which will involve a roman soldier in full armour describing life as a soldier, displaying his weaponry and demonstrating the equipment used.
The children will be led through soldier’s drills and a mock barbarian battle.
The amount can also be paid in instalments, please speak to the office staff for any further information.
Thank you very much for your support.
