Bewley Primary School
'The children at Bewley Primary School have benefited greatly by the funding of The Roman Society. We bought copies of the book to fit inline with our year 3 studies of Rome and the Romans. This enabled us to use our daily reading sessions to get even more of an insight into the lives of Romans and more specifically the people of Pompei.  It was fabulous to keep the momentum in the topic through such cross curricular links. This is a great resource that the children this year have enjoyed, but it will be used again for years to come as we tackle this topic with future generations of year 3 pupils here at Bewley'.

Bowling Park Primary School: 'The children loved the opportunity to immerse themselves in their Roman topic. The role play items and books allowed them to delve even further into this fascinating topic, which really sparked their imaginations. These items were even more important this year, as our usual trip to Murton Park will not go ahead due to Covid restrictions. A huge thank you to everyone at the SPRS, your support has been greatly appreciated. As we were able to buy three of each item, all three of our Year 4 classes could take part. This meant that around 90 children have been involved'. 

Fordingbridge Junior School: 'A very much appreciated delivery from history was received at Fordingbridge Junior School this term! Children in Year 3 were extremely excited to be the first to see the replica Roman artefacts and try on costumes, kindly funded by The Roman Society, which they will be exploring further in their Roman learning unit after Christmas.' Read their report here.
