Students from year four at Milton Park Primary School donned the clothing of gladiators, soldiers and Roman citizens to take part in activities designed to teach them about the Roman empire.

A number of the students made their own shields, helmets, swords and armour 
to wear as part of their homework topic.

Teachers also dressed 
up for the event, sporting togas and headdresses to mark occasion.

During lessons, pupils made mosaic pictures out of tiles, crafted laurel leaf headbands to wear and cooked flatbread to try in class.
