P3a, P3b and P3/2 visit the National Museum of Scotland

We visited the Museum in Edinburgh last Thursday as part of our Romans topic. We learned about what a Roman soldier wore and the names he gave to his weapons. Did you know that the Romans wanted their horses to look good in battle so they gave them necklaces and decorated harnesses?

We also enjoyed looking at and handling artefacts including an oil lamp, maille (an armoured shirt), sandals and knucklebones (a Roman game).

We are now looking forward to the visit from the Roman soldier and our Roman Feast (both on Wednesday 24th February). Our teachers would like us to bring a pillowcase (white if possible) into school by Monday 22nd February. We will use the pillowcases to make togas.

Some photos of our trip……… more to follow……….
