Would I go to school ?


Poor Roman children did not go to school. Their parents could not afford to send them. Instead , they were expected to help there parents with their work. Some boys learnt a craft , such as wood working or making mosaics. Girls learnt how to run a household.

Children in Roman Britain did not have books to write in. A pupil used a metal pointer , called a stylus , to write on a small wax tablet.

I cant wait to learn more about Romans!                                                        Aimee Hutton 4M
