The Romans are coming! The Romans are coming! 

Let's get excited for our new topic!

Throughout this term we shall  be exploring the fantastic, rich history of Roman Britain spanning from AD 43 - 410 

 

We have completed our Stunning Start for our topic where we travelled on a Roman voyage through Y3 and 4 undertaking tasks such as; mosaic decorating, wreath-making, shield constructing and Roman taste-testing!

 

WE ARE GOING TO CHESTER!

On Thursday 8th February Y4 shall be transported back in time to discover what life would have been like under the Roman Empire. We shall visit famous Roman landmarks of the city and been immersed with wonderful historical facts!

 

In History we shall be delving into the past looking at such topics as...

- Life in Rome vs Life in Roman Britain

- Power of the Roman army

- The Roman influence on Britain today

- Roman battles between the Celts and Boudica c. 

 

We shall also have a Geography focus where we shall be investigating....

-The land that made up Rome and how it has changed over time

-Naming and locating important towns and cities within the Roman Empire

-Comparing the land of Britain to Italy

-The influence and importance of Roman roads

 

In Art, we are going to spend time creating our own mosaics! We shall be perfecting our designs using printing sticks before adding them to our own class mosaic! Furthermore, in our DT lessons we shall be creating our own Roman coin purses!
