Invaders and settlers day for Year 3
Year 3 made houses, mosaics, menus, tasted food and even dress up for their invaders and settlers day.
Year 3 teachers organised an Invaders and Settlers day as it linked in with their history topic. Year 3 got to learn a bit of the Roman language, which was Latin. The Romans made and used mosaics to decorate their houses and important places, so year 3 had the opportunity to make their own. The fun food that they got to taste included olives, figs in honey, goat’s cheese and seeded bread. The mosaics they made could be any pattern or letter but they had a limited amount of paper squares to make it.
You could either dress up as a Roman, Celt, Saxon or Viking. Romans wore lots of jewellery and a tunic. If you dressed up as a Viking you would wear a helmet and a warm animal fur coat. If you dressed up as a Roman you would wear sandals, a plain red shirt and armour. If you were a normal Roman girl, you would wear a plain white dress, belts, sandals, broche and a hair band. If you dress up as a Celt, you would wear a black top, blue cardigan with maybe black stripes.
Some people we interviewed said what they liked most. Catherine in 3S like the interesting food such as the cheese, olives and leaves. Elizabeth in 3B liked making mosaics; Rishita in 3J liked the food and mosaics. Katie thought it was quite nice and exciting to do.
