Pupils at Cowbit St Mary’s C of E Primary were transported into Roman times for a day of fun and learning.

Years 2, 3 and 4 dressed up as soldiers from the Roman Empire and Greek goddesses.

The day involved designing and making Roman shields from sketches in a book and making pizza.

As well as tucking into pizzas, they also tasted popular foods from the time such as figs, pomegranates and dates.

Teacher Rochelle Holden said the day was a great success.

She said: “The pupils especially enjoyed tasting the food and the role play when they were in the Roman Legion.”
