Primary 4 had great fun learning about how the Romans built their roads. After they learnt about the different layers and the materials that were used, it was time to build their own Roman Roads.
The children used various healthy foods to construct their road. They used grapes as the large rocks of the foundations, muesli as the small stones and pebbles used to fill in the gaps. Natural yoghurt and raisins as the concrete with broken stones and tiles then finally sliced apple as the cobble stones on top.
