Romans and Celts Fight it Out at Southill

Having spent the summer constructing splendid shields, Year 4 put them to the test today re-enacting an ancient battle fought between the Celts and the Roman invaders. The rules were simple: to claim victory, capture your opponents’ standard (a white pole!) or ‘kill’ all of the opposing army by removing a tag from their belts. Tactics were discussed, photos were taken, battles cries were shrieked and then… well, everyone charged at each other. The video and photos below tell the tale.
