Unfortunately we weren't able to get out this afternoon when we became Roman soldiers due to the rain, although I doubt this would have stopped real Roman soldiers! But this didn't stop us from marching and preparing to face an enemy.
Later we made an Onager (a Roman catapult) and had a competition to see which one could throw a piece of clay the furthest and was therefore the best one. We put our science investigation knowledge to good use here as children identified the need for a fair test. Mrs Hayter's Onager fired the clay 10cm, which she thought was quite good until one team fired the clay 81cm! Boo hoo Mrs Hayter but well done the winning team!
