Roman Theme Days at CONKERS In The Heart Of The National Forest Wednesday 6th February - Thursday 7th March

Our Roman Day Meet a Centurion - join the Legion! The Britons are revolting, and we need new soldiers to defeat them. Find out what it takes to join the most disciplined army in the ancient world. Life under the Romans - meet a slave, and learn about life in a Roman Villa. Also, discover the exotic foods the Romans brought with them. Building a Better Britain - children compare and contrast a number of Roman inventions to do with bathing, road building and central heating and create an aqueduct in competition with each other. Meet Boudicca - children have an audience with Queen Boudicca! She tells the story of her life so far and enlists the children into her army. Roman Mosaics - what villa is complete without mosaics? Learn how to arrange your tesserae, and make beautiful floors, and works of art. Celts & Druids - children meet a British Roman to discover what life was like before the Romans arrived and how it has changed.

    We’re looking forward to welcoming you and your class to CONKERS soon for your Viking or Roman or Stone Age Heritage Theme Day. Feedback from previous years has told us that many teachers like to prepare their class for an educational visit to CONKERS, because, the children get so much more out of the day if they have touched on the topics in class beforehand. So here is a brief description of the workshops your class will be enjoying in a few weeks’ time when they visit CONKERS.
