Spalding Primary School Year 3 pupils had an exciting opportunity to become Romans for the day thanks to a fantastic visit from History Off the Page.

Children went to school dressed as Romans, some as soldiers or gladiators, others as gods or poor salves, and spent the morning working to earn silver coins off their stern master.

They got the chance to write with ink on parchment or wax, to create mosaics or clay pots, make lamps or mix herbs to create medicines, ending the day with a delicious feast where the slaves had to wait on the rich in exchange for food.

Teacher Stephanie Kinchin said the “memorable day” was complete with entertainment in the shape of dances and plays put together by the children.
