A Royal Roman Banquet

Date: 22nd Apr 2023 @ 1:29pm

To launch our topic, why were the Romans so powerful? We enjoyed having a Roman banquet. First, we created laurel wreaths to wear, and many of the children even dressed as Romans for the day. We learnt and joined in with many different songs and discovered all the different foods the Romans ate and brought to Britain. When it was time to eat, we ate goat's cheese, porridge, honey, figs, dates, mackrel, olives, and much more. Some of the food we enjoyed and some we did not, but everyone had their favourites. The cold meats and fruitcake were definitely a hit for most of the children. It was definitely a fantastic way to start our topic.
