We have worked in many many schools across England, and get repeat visits year after year from the same schools, as we offer something unique and different to get children excited about History and Art. A Day they will always remember and talk about for a long time after...
This is what the day includes

We Use props and humour to help children learn about the Romans, and thier past, we give an insight to Mosaics and why they were used.
After assembly there is the Mosaic Making using coloured tesserae simular in appearance to the stones the Romans would have used.
Large groups are divided into 2, with an hour for Mosaic making, while the second group does a roman activity organised by the school.

Learning how to fight like a Gladiator and die Dramatically !
Minerva & Diana have a live fight using wooden swords , and shields as a demonstration of gladiator training in the Roman Ludis, it gives an up close insight into how entertaining but serious they took the Gladiators back in those days.
Then the Children get involved !
No weapons used, just vivid imaginations and an in depth look at how the Gladiator fighting evolved from its origin at Funerals to honour the dead into the famous Games and entertainment in Roman times.
