Toga Tuesday

As part of our Roving Romans topic, Year 4 is planning an afternoon of Roman relaxation, board games and entertainment on Tuesday 3rd July 2018. 

There will be time during the afternoon for children to graze on delicious nibbles brought in from home. 

We would like to ask for your help to make the afternoon one to remember.  Please can your child:

  • Bring in a ‘toga style’ costume to wear during the afternoon. This need not be elaborate, e.g. a plain white t-shirt with a tie at the waist can be made to look like a Roman tunic. Feel free to accessorise- or not! Some of you may want to wear your costume from the Greek assembly. A couple of links that might prove useful:
  • We would also like the children to bring in a small plate/tub of Roman style snacks for themselves. Two or three things are fine. We won’t have time for a huge banquet!  Here are a few ideas:  Grapes, bread, dates, olives, fruit and raisins.  No nuts or stuffed dormice, please!

 

  • A board game to play as the Romans were very keen on them. No electronic games please.

 

  • Lastly, children may bring a cushion to lounge on.
