Roman Britain Survival Guide
Makers of History bring Roman Britain to life in your classroom!
We offer an exciting , full day of content for up to three classes all in line with 2014 National Curriculum objectives.
A Legionary soldier and rich Roman lady in authentic costume will spend the day with your children and help them understand the new conquerors.
Should they fight the invaders or adapt to new Roman ways?
We use lots of hands-on activities, artefacts, games, costumes and drama to bring their learning to life. The workshop is engaging, active and highly visual and is designed to be as inclusive as possible for every child in your class.
Often enjoyed as Wow! Days many teachers invite us back year after year to help their classes learn all about life in Roman Britain. Why not contact us to read many more reviews of this workshop and find out why!
