Redwings become Romans!

We really enjoyed starting our first day of Year 3 as Romans. During the day, we made and baked traditional Roman honey and ricotta tartlets and enjoyed eating these during our Roman banquet. We also got to design and make our own shields and found out some interesting facts about life in the Roman Empire.
