PRIMARY school pupils transformed their school hall into Roman villa as they spent a day reliving ancient Rome to bring their studies to life.

More than 90 children in years four, five and six at the William Stukeley School in Holbeach took part in a host of workshops – using Roman tools and methods to make medicines, candles, pottery, mosaics and bread.

The children earned ‘Roman coins’ based on the quality of their craftsmanship and used them to buy goods for the next group.

The workshops took place in the morning and in the afternoon the children took part in a Roman banquet.

Teacher Claire Underwood said: “The school hall was tranformed into a Roman villa. It was absolutely fantastic – the children got so much out of it.”
