Year 4 expanded on our learning about the Romans with a visit from The Red House. Mr Carr brought a range of Roman artefacts with him for us to investigate. Call My Bluff was an entertaining game where we read out 4 different descriptions of a Roman object, and had to guess which was the correct definition. Miss Jackson and Mrs Sutton were really impressed by the facts and information that we were able to recall from our learning this term. Freya S showed excellent risk-taking, leading a Roman music band and creating a unique rhythm on the Scabellum (a Roman foot castanet). Eloise accompanied her on the Sistrum, an oval shaker, and Mr Carr stood at the other end of the hall to play the Aulos, a double flute that sounded like bag-pipes. Mr Carr had prepared wax tablets for us to experience how Roman school children would have written. The vast majority of Year 4 enjoyed carving words and pictures onto a wax tablet, but a few said that they found this activity quite challenging. A minority of the class loved it so much that they wish we did all of our learning on wax! It’s definitely a bit messy though. Written collaboratively by Year 4
