Yesterday we were reading about the catacombs under ancient Rome that were used by the Christians. Today the children made and played in their own catacomb (above). They placed secret symbols inside so they could identify friends and foes. L is in one of the burial alcoves.
Today we were reading about the Celts that lived in Britain and fought the Romans at the time of the Roman empire. The children traced some Celtic cross shapes which was much harder than it looks and great for fine motor and perceptual skills. We then tried drawing some Celtic knots free hand which was tricky too.
