The Festival of Saturnalia

What a day! Today, we have experienced the Festival of Saturnalia. Some of us were slaves, some were curiales, and others were market vendors selling olives, garum fish sauce, oysters and much more.

Once we all had a role, we celebrated the the festival by recreating a festival scene.

Io Saturnalia!

Next, we learnt a little more about the Roman Gods.

Finally, the rotten Roman public were entertained with a gladiatorial fight in the Colosseum.

If you see any year 4’s around school, maybe you could ask them a little bit about our day!
