Primary school Roman Day report

Published Date: 26 January 2009
A FUN-FILLED day as roaming Romans was experienced by youngsters at West Park First and Middle School.
Pupils in years two and three at the school in Marlborough Road, Goring, spent the day learning what life would have been like in the Roman army.

They made their own shields, designed mosaics, acted out the Roman invasion and enjoyed a Roman feast.

There was also a guest appearance by an emperor, also known as Peter Neale, the head teacher, and an expert on Roman life gave a talk.

Rebecca Wren, first school leader, said: “The children’s costumes were wonderful and the day was a fantastic success.”
