Experience what life and learning is really like at Wakefield Girls’ by joining us for one or two of our exciting, challenging and inspiring Virtual Experiences. We have something every month for all passions, talents and interests – from code breaking to creative-writing, sport to science and arts to maths. Our Experiences are open to all Year 5 girls.
Whichever Experience you choose, you can expect it to be jam-packed with exciting activities delivered by our subject specialist teachers.
A different Experience will run every month – register for those you’d like to attend and we’ll be in touch with details and a link to the event. Each Experience will be live for one week so you can dip in and out at your convenience.
We look forward to giving you a warm Wakefield Girls’ welcome.
Friday 23rd April 2021 – A Day in Rome Experience Day
Join us and travel back in time to discover and explore daily life in the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum in AD79. As you discover how the Romans lived and worked in their cities, how they entertained themselves and about their relationships with their gods, watch out as Mount Vesuvius erupts! You will take on the role of a news reporter and working together with other reporters in your news team, you will report on the breaking news stories that interrupt your day. There are deadlines to meet to have regular news bulletins ready to be posted in the city centre. You will discover how the Romans reacted to a volcanic eruption and how it affected the lives of the people who lived in its shadow.
Who is the event for?
The event is for Year 5 girls who have an interest in learning more about the Ancient World (and volcanoes!).
What will you get from the event ?
You will have lots of fun learning about Romans as well as developing skills such as analysing, team-working and reporting.
Our virtual experience will be emailed to you on the day. Available online from 23 April 2021 for one week, at your convenience from home.
