Roman Mosaics Project, Year 3

The Year 3 children of Chorlton Church of England Primary School can tell you all about the Romans. The topic has been one that they’ve thoroughy enjoyed and now they’re all expert mosaic makers too!

In just two workshop sessions, the whole class had completed their work and it was ready to grout. With help from Tracey and a couple of parent volunteers, each child then had the opportunity to grout their masterpiece themself.

    Thank you for a fantastic workshop. Every child in the class reproduced their own individual design and the finished tiles look incredible. The children and I are all so proud of what they were able to achieve with your help. Thank you again.

    Thank you so much for your work in our school Tracey. The children thoroughly enjoyed making the mosaics and they look fantastic on display.

    I hope that we’ll be able to work together again soon on some ‘bigger’ projects around school.
