Thirds Roman Day

On Friday 26th January, the Thirds enjoyed a carousel of activities to complement their studies of Latin during Roman Day. The girls enjoyed a visit from a Roman soldier who shared his wealth of knowledge about the Roman World. They learnt about classical fashion, dressed up as Roman soldiers and acted out improvised drama sketches based on Roman and Greek mythology. The girls ended the day by practising two army formations, 'contra equites' and the 'testudo', while under javelin fire from the rest of the group!
