St. Thomas the Martyr now has 26 new recruits trained to join the Roman army. Marcus the Roman came into school on Monday 30th November 2020 and taught the Year Five class how to carry out foot and shield drills with the instructions in Latin. The children explored the armour, weapons and marching pack carried by soldiers. They handled replica artefacts and asked and answered many questions demonstrating their sticky historical knowledge. It was an exciting way to enrich the curriculum and finish off their Romans topic.
