Chestnut Class Roman Parent Workshop

On Wednesday 3rd April, Chestnut Class Emperors invited their parents in to assist with building their chariots. Having measured and cut the wood for the frame and designed and decorated the outside of the chariot, all that was left to do was to put everything together.


The Emperors impressed everyone with their knowledge of the Romans including how mosaics are made and the different shield formations Roman soldiers would use in battle. 

There were non-fiction books and Roman artefacts which the Chestnut Emperors told their grown-ups all about. Parents had the opportunity to go back to school and write their name using the Roman alphabet. However, it was not all hard work for the adults as they did have the pleasure of playing a Roman game with an Emperor!
