This afternoon, on the playground at St Mark's Junior School, four legions of Roman soldiers were seen invading. Soldiers of the legions of Ramsburious, Figsburious, Clearburious and Aveburious were observed marching and practising their manoeuvres.
Moggius the lion was defeated by numerous gladiators!
We found out about the Roman games that children played. Lots of them were very similar to those we play today. We made our own version of Nine men's Morris, Tic tac toe and Merre and had great fun playing them.
