Some very lucky Year Three children have been asked to take part in a very special project. They have been learning all about the Romans and the children have been set the challenge of researching and writing their very own non-fiction book about the Romans. With the help of Ms Wray and Miss Etchells, they will be using lot’s of exciting technology, like digital photography and iphoto.

Before starting a fight the Gladiators would say to the Emperor “We who are about to die salute you”.  Then they would fight to the death.  At the and of the fight, the Emperor would put his thumbs up if the Gladitor should live.  But he could only do once to each person, the second time he had to die, he can only save them once.
