Roman solider stops in for lessons
PUBLISHED: 20:00 09 March 2015
CHILDREN in year four at Windwhistle School were visited by a Roman soldier, who taught them all about the different types of weapons and armour used in battle.
The Weston youngsters have been studying the ancient culture since September, and were able to quiz the visitor about life in historic times.
The Roman soldier also taught the children how to march in various formations using the Roman-style shields they had made for protection from enemy soldiers.
Although the class found it a challenge to stay in the right positions and march at the same time, they all found it interesting to learn the Latin commands.
