Boudica falls on the field of battle – Key Stage 2

Hertfordshire Mercury

By Amy Roberts

ANCIENT battle cries filled the air in Buntingford as children at Millfield First and Middle School in Buntingford took part in a mock Celt and Roman tussle.

Pupils in Key Stage 2 from the Monks Walk School dressed as the two groups of warriors with shields which they had made alongside their parents at home.

Headteacher Kathy Willet said: “The children are currently working on an invaders and settlers topic and we held this mock battle as a practical way for them to really have fun in their learning.

“They learnt about how the different groups fought. The Romans made the tortoise formation while they were marching and the Celts were led by Boudicca who acted a mock death on the field!”
