In Year 3 we decided to launch our new topic of the term with an afternoon Roman Bootcamp. The children learnt the Latin commands for marching as centurions would have done in Roman times.
Laxarte = Stand at ease
Intente = stand to attention
Sin = left (left foot forward)
Dex = right (right foot forward)
Percute = Charge!
Following a great demonstration by the children, we came inside to watch a little of the movie 'Horrible Histories - Rotten Romans' of which was released last year.
The children had a great time and are really looking forward to learning more about the Romans.
