Why were baths so popular with the Romans?
  • Roman baths were more like a visit to a leisure
    centre than a quick scrub.
  • The Romans loved the baths because they were a
    good place to meet people and business could be
    conducted there.
  • When you went to the baths you firstly changed
    and did some exercises.
  • Then you might have a swim before going into a
    series of rooms that made you hotter and hotter
    to help you sweat off the dirt.
  • All the dirt and sweat was then scraped off with
    a STRIGIL (made out of metal).
  • They then swam in the cold pool.

Games
  • Animals and people were sometimes killed for
    entertainment as part of shows in amphitheatres.
  • The Romans played similar games to what we play
    today. Board games with counters and dice were
    very popular with the Romans.
  • Hunting was also popular. People in the
    countryside would hunt animals for fun as well as
    food.
  • Some things the Romans did for fun were horrible.

What did the Romans see in amphitheatres?
  • Specially trained slaves called GLADIATORS would
    fight each other. They would even fight wild
    animals such as lions or bears. When a gladiator
    lost a fight the audience would decided whether
    he should die or live.
  • The audience would put their thumbs out if they
    wanted them to die.
  • If they wanted them to live they kept their
    thumbs in their hands so they couldn't be seen.

  • The Romans also went to the theatre to watch
    plays or listen to music.
  • The actors often wore masks to show whether their
    character was sad or happy.

Today's work
  • Pretend you are writing a quiz about Roman
    leisure. You need to ask 10 questions with three
    possible answers, making sure one of those three
    is the correct one.
  • Decorate your quiz sheet.
  • Draw a box at the bottom of the page. You need to
    write the correct answers (the people doing the
    quiz wouldn't see this).
