As a fantastic start to the Roman topic LKS2 took a visit to the Royal Cornwall Museum. The children were able to handle real Roman artefacts! These included; coins, mosaics, mirrors and kitchenware (amongst many others.)
One of the artefacts that was closely looked at was the fascinating clay lamps. The children were then able to design and make one of their very own! Children moulded the clay into a standard Roman clay lamp and then transformed them into an animal.
It was a very interesting, fun (and slightly messy) day.
