Making a Roman Numeral Square

June 20, 2016 by Ellie Linton

Last term Year 3 learnt about the Romans, and one of their lessons was to create colours and dye materials just like the Romans did, using natural dyes made of vegetables. One of the parents, Mrs Bell, came in to work with the children on dying square pieces of materials using crushed up plants.  Each child was given a Roman numeral to put on their square of dyed material and then Mrs Bell sewed them all together into a Roman numeral 100 number square, which will be hung up in the Year 3 area.  Great work everyone!
