Bedford Prep School Boys Travelling back in Time
It was a busy but exciting first week of the new academic year for some of the youngest boys at Bedford Prep School as they travelled back in time to explore the worlds of the Romans and the Ancient Egyptians.
On Thursday 6 September, Y4 boys sank their teeth into their new topic: The Romans, when they headed to the School Dining Halls for a spot of pizza making. It may be hard to imagine, but this modern-day staple owes its origins to the Romans, who were amongst the first to add toppings to flatbreads – normally olive oil and local spices. The school chefs were on hand during the fun session to help the boys create their own delicious versions.
On Friday 7 September, the new cohort of Y3 boys became archaeologists as they travelled back to Ancient Egypt. Using tunnel paintings, pottery and puzzles, the boys collected clues about their fascinating topic.
With plenty of interactive lessons and activities planned for the weeks ahead, there will doubtless be more time travel for the boys to enjoy.Published: September 11 2018
