Roman Soldiers

Roman's Salute!
Year 3 had a crash course in Roman Soldiering out on the playground parade ground!
We learnt that Roman soldiers were highly disciplined and shouted at quite a lot by the Centurion!
We also learnt that the Latin word for left was 'sinistra' and right was 'dextra'. When we marched we had to shout 'sin, dex, sin, dex' (left right, left right).
Roman soldiers carried a heavy shield called a 'scutum' in his left hand and fought with his 'gladius' (sword) in his right hand.
