The Rotten Romans!
This term, we are going to be learn all about the Romans. They were rulers of a MASSIVE empire stretching from Britain to the Middle East! We have a lot to thanks them for... but what? We will be learning about when/how they invaded, who resisted their command, the lifestyle that they introduced to our Celtic ancestors and what religion they brought with them- We have nearly finished the history topic so make sure you ask the children what they have learnt so far!
The children's history skills in Spring 1 have been AMAZING and they have learnt so much. they seem to really be engaging with this topic.
We went to the Roman Deva museum and had a FANTASTIC time! SEE BELOW FOR PICTURES
