Roman Day Reminder!

Our Year 4 Roman Day is THIS THURSDAY coming. We would love for everyone (who wants to) to be dressed up in something Roman so when we have our feast we all look grand!

Also, if you are able, we would appreciate some Romanesque food to add to our feast. For example, breads, dips, grapes, meats, pancakes, dates, honey, vegetables, salad or fruit.

Thank you in advance for any offerings and keep your eyes peeled for the photos!

ROMAN DAY!

It’s that time of the year, where the costumes come out and the fun begins!

Thursday 11th July 2019 – All Day Fun

Year 4 are holding their annual Roman Day, that links to our Topic this half term, where we can dress up as Roman folk (leaders, followers or soldiers) and enjoy a Roman Feast.

As part of our DT ‘Healthy Diets’ we will be preparing some Roman style foods in class, but we would also appreciate any Roman style food donations to make our Roman Feast as tasty as possible. (Olives, flatbreads, hummus, tzatziki, salad, feta, figs, grapes, dates, cakes)

We are certainly looking forward to this day, so we hope the children are too!
