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.
