St James' C of E Primary
March 2010 saw the Invictus Legion visit St James' C of E, Ashton and what a fantastic sight they were as the Wolves of Rome marched, eagle's raised, through Daisy Nook to Ashton. Paul also followed in his van to carry the 8 boxes of artifacts and weapons. The legion surrounded the school and stood guard throughout the day, just hidden out of sight so as not to cause alarm.
Timelines, Boudica, weapons and medicine were just some of the topics covered and the class are now very glad their mum's use washing powder instead of washing clothes the traditional Roman way.
A very special thank you to the bakery at Tesco Droylsden who baked and donated a selection of their 'Breads of the World' for the class to sample. The 'mediterranean bread' proved a massive hit. An even bigger thank you to the boy who thought the snacks were fantastic until he realised he was eating my dinner and handed it back.
All in all a smashing day.
We learnt how doctors found the arrow then we learnt how to take it out.
We checked hops and two types of barley but didn't brew any beer. We tasted olives and Roman sweets made from almonds. We tried different types of rye and 'med' bread.
We sparked flint to make fire, used steam to get clean and made a Tortoise
These are the comment written by the class.
I liked the bit where ARON picked Kasper and made a shield.
I liked the bit where the boys won the girl.
I liked the bit when we painted our face in blue and made pitchers
Thank you, ADREES

I loved the day you spent with us.The best bit was when you had to pull the bullet out of the pig it
was good because it was all messy and I like messy stuff. I also liked it when we dressed up in all
the jewellery and clothes it made us look all grown up.
Well I liked it all really but some I liked more than others . I could go on all day if I wanted to. I just
want to say that I didn't like the quiz because the boys won. We learned that the Romans washed
their clothes in wee.
I like to make a Spark with the flint.
