A Roman Feast for Year 7
15 December 2016
Last Thursday, Year 7 enjoyed the delights of a Roman feast in the Classics Department. They sampled the likes of grapes, cheese, bread and honey followed by sweet treats of sponge cake and cheesecake. The girls extended their learning of the cena (Roman dinner party) beyond the classroom and enjoyed putting themselves in ancient Romans’ shoes.
They dared to sample bread with both cheese and honey and were delighted that the Roman diet included items like cheesecake! A fabulous time had by all.
