Year 3 have been learning about the Romans and what they did for entertainment. They experienced what a Roman bath was like.
First children entered the palaestra to exercise. After exercising, they visited the sauna where they used their time to read about the Roman baths and answered questions. In the massage room they massaged their partner shoulders, drank Ribena(Roman wine) and ate grapes. They dipped their feet in the icy water in the frigidarium. Finally they used the wash room to wash their hands using soap and olive oil to see what they preferred.
