P6 Roman Day

On Wednesday 25th March, primary six arrived to school in style for our Roman Day.  We dressed in our finest Roman clothes, fit for emperors and goddesses.  Our taste buds tingled as we tried lots of Roman foods, including tomatoes, grapes, olives, mackerel, pitta bread and honey.  We then rated what we liked and disliked.  We took part in lots of different activities.
