Roman Battle Herbertstown Style

The yard in school was turned into the coliseum for one day only last week! 3rd and 4th class designed their own shields and took part in a mock battle just as the Romans would have done. The children became true gladiators decorating their shields, practicing moving with their legions in the turtle formation and attacking the other legions with bean bags. Unfortunately, the rain brought a swift end to the gladiator battle but everyone had lots of fun!
